VAN NUYS, Calif., July 20 (UPI) -- The first wife of imprisoned music producer Phil Spector has been reported missing from her Van Nuys, Calif., home, police said Monday.

Annette Merar, 65, was reported missing Friday, the Los Angeles Police Department told the Riverside (Calif.) Press-Enterprise.

Merar was described as a diabetic, who is 5 feet 2 inches tall and 160 pounds.

Her family told police she may appear confused, the newspaper said.

Spector is currently serving a sentence of 19 years to life in prison for a second-degree murder conviction in the 2003 shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson at his home. Spector married his fourth wife, Rachelle Short, in 2006.

The Press-Enterprise did not say when or for how long Merar was married to Spector.
