Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan missed her first day of community service on Tuesday.

The Mean Girls actress was reportedly due to arrive for duty at the Duffield Children's Centre in Brooklyn, New York, on Tuesday morning but failed to attend as she reportedly didn't fly in from London until late afternoon.

A source told the New York Daily News newspaper's Confidenti@l column they were "speechless" over Lindsay's actions - particularly because she had Instagrammed a picture on Monday to say she was back in the US and "ready to help".

Happy to be home in nyc with my family and friends. Missed this place. ???? ready to help ????

Ivonne Lopez, the facility's director of early childhood programmes, attributed the Machete star's absence to paperwork problems.

She said: "She needs to be cleared."

Lindsay must complete 115 hours of community service before 28 May or face jail time after falling "woefully short" of her 125 hours.

The 28-year-old star was ordered to do more hours in February after a Los Angeles judge criticised certain tasks she had counted as part of her punishment for reckless driving in 2012, including meet-and-greet sessions with fans in London.

Just last week Lindsay was said to have undertaken 9.5 hours and will therefore have to work seven hours a day for seven days a week in order to finish by the deadline.

However she may find it tough to complete the sentence as a hearing previously stated she could only undertake four hours of voluntary work a day.
