Under investigation by Scotland Yard, the disappearance of a set of diamond earrings and a necklace was reported on June 8. The baubles were on loan for a June 6 magazine shoot.
"We inquired and everyone from the shoot is being questioned," Lohan's rep tells PEOPLE. "Hair, make up, stylist ... even photographers. Lindsay hopes they find the jewels. She is happy to cooperate."
A police spokeswoman tells PEOPLE, "Westminster Police are investigating an allegation of theft of jewelry from studios in Brewery Road in Islington. The theft was reported to a central London police station on the eighth of June after earrings and a necklace, believed to be diamond and estimated to be worth $400,000, were found to be missing approximately two days earlier."
She adds: "Inquiries are continuing and no arrests have been made. As far as who we will be interviewing – we will be speaking to a number of people in connection with the inquiry and don’t discuss the identity of the people we are planning to interview."
Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for Elle U.K. released a statement exonerating the 22-year-old star. "I can confirm on behalf of Elle magazine, that items of jewelry went missing from an Elle photoshoot ... and the matter is now being investigated by the police," she states. "Elle has no reason to believe that Lindsay Lohan was in any way responsible and has no further comment to make."
