The husband of a woman from Sussex who's been missing for six weeks has made a desperate appeal for her return.
Fatima Mohamed-Ali, who's fifty-two, was last seen near her home at Park Drive Close in Newhaven on 12 February.
She left her handbag and personal items behind. Her husband Mohamed says her disappearance is completely out of character. He spoke to our reporter Malcolm Shaw.
Police are very concerned for the welfare of 52-year-old Fatima Mohamed-Ali who is missing from her home in Newhaven.
She was last seen around 7.30am yesterday morning and is believed to have left her house in Park Drive Close on foot between this time and 3.15pm, leaving her handbag and other personal items behind.
This is completely out of character for Fatima who is Indian, 5' 2", of slim build with shoulder-length black hair worn in a ponytail. She is likely to be wearing traditional Indian dress.
"Fatima's family are understandably very worried about her and we have launched a full search for her in the Newhaven area, supported by volunteers from Sussex Search and Rescue (SusSAR). "If you have seen her at any time since Friday morning, please let us know immediately by calling 101 quoting serial 946 of 12/02. If you see her, please dial 999 immediately."

Today's ruling means there's now a new Lord Lucan as Andy Dickenson explains. His report contains flash photography and includes interviews with Lord John Bingham and Sandra Rivett's son Neil Berriman.
