Worried X Factor bosses called police to help track down One Direction star Louis Tomlinson
The singer went missing after being given 2 hours off on Wednesday.
The concerned production crew even started to call local hospitals and police once it got to midnight.
But the search was called off when Louis, 18, eventually contacted them – he told them he was back home in Northampton.
‘[He] needed a break,’ a source tells The Sun.
Louis returned to London yesterday and has since been given a warning about going AWOL by bosses.
One Direction – including Zain Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Niall Horan – are being mentored by Simon Cowell, 51, on the The X Factor.
