The CCTV footage, from last summer, has only recently come to light and we are issuing it to see if we can establish whether it is her or not."

“The woman who knew Fatima says she thinks she saw her running for a bus. Extensive enquiries were carried out in the area and CCTV cameras from a nearby bank in North Street captured a woman running for a Brighton and Hove bus just before 6pm on Monday 7 August 2017."

"Fatima’s family has seen the footage and for their sake it would be good to establish if it isn’t her. If someone does remember a woman matching the description of Fatima in North Street getting on a bus or if they have any information of her whereabouts, please let us know."

"Her family are still desperate to hear any news or about any sightings of her. They need answers to the many questions they have."

– PC Kath Nevill, Sussex Police

I have viewed the CCTV and although I cannot say that it is Fatima, the woman walks like her and has her type of hair style. It has been nearly two years since she went missing and maybe this video will jog someone’s memory."

"My family and I just want to know what has happened to Fatima and where she is. If anyone has any information about Fatima please contact the police.”
