The family of a missing Sussex woman say they feel 'let down by police'. Thirty-year-old Georgina Gharsallah was last seen in Worthing in March. She left her home to go shopping, but never returned. Sussex Police says it's 'continually reviewing the case'.

Georgina's family have made a fresh appeal for her safe return. Her mother says more should have been done during the search.

Georgina, 30, was last seen in Worthing on the morning of 7 March wearing a grey jacket with a fur-lined hood.

She is 5’ 2”, with shoulder-length dark hair, often worn in a top knot, and has a Monroe-style piercing above her left lip.

Georgina has Arabian features and speaks Arabic among friends.

It is believed she may still be around Worthing or she could have travelled to Brighton.

She was last seen on CCTV leaving a local shop and, since then, both her credit card and mobile phone haven’t been used

If you see Georgina, call 999 immediately. If you have information on her whereabouts or have seen her, please report or call 101 quoting reference 603 of 17/03.

Georgina's mother believe police were "too slow to take seriously" and were slow to communicate with the family.

In any investigation, the senior investigating officer will formulate a number of hypothesis based on the information they have at the time. Information that then comes into the enquiry will test each of those hypotheses. At this time, there is nothing to indicate that Georgina is deceased. However, it will obviously remain one of the potential hypothesis.

Despite there being a large number of lines of enquiry, including potential sightings, when followed up, none of them have proved to be Georgina.

We have issued four press releases on the disappearance of Georgina and have continued to post social media messages appealing for the public to keep looking for her.

There has also been a large focus on disseminating Georgina’s profile nationally and conducting enquiries outside of Sussex and into other areas of the UK. To name a few, the National Missing Persons Charity, the Tourism board and Royal Mail have been contacted and have disseminated Georgina’s profile to all areas of their business. The Missing Persons Charity has coverage within the Outreach communities across the South East and specifically, the capital. Royal Mail has disseminated Georgina’s profile across their entire UK work force via their personal terminals.
