Snapper Lyndon Chubbuck says the photos, which are going to be displayed at an art event later this week, were taken when they were transported.
Six nude photos of actress Eva Mendes have gone missing, according to the photographer who took them. Snapper Lyndon Chubbuck claims pictures of the star were taken at some point between being transported from the printer to an art show last weekend.
He was preparing the images to go on display at an art event in Los Angeles' Supperclub later this week. Chubbuck is planning to file a police report over the missing photos - but insists it's merely for insurance purposes because he claims, "The cops aren't really going to put a mad hunt out for my Eva photos."
The pictures of Mendes will still be able to go on display as planned as Chubbuck arranged for reprints to be made, reports TMZ.com.
