Tobias “Toby” Sheldon, the 35-year-old who spent more $100,000 on plastic surgery to look like Justin Bieber, was found dead last week, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

According to TMZ, officials found his body on Aug. 21 in a Motel 6 in California’s San Fernando Valley. Officers found drugs at the scene, but no cause of death has been determined. Sheldon was reported missing on Aug. 18 and was last seen on the 1700 block of North Orange Grove Avenue in West Hollywood. At the time, friends told ABC7 that his disappearance was unusual, saying that he hadn’t left a note or anything to indicate he would be gone.

The Los Angeles Police Department speculated his disappearance may have been connected to a recent breakup with his boyfriend. Sheldon was known for appearances on TV series such as Botched and My Strange Addiction.
