Police continue search for missing person Laurel Aldridge

Police are continuing to carry out extensive searches for Laurel Aldridge missing from Walberton, near Arundel.

The 62-year-old who is considered to be very vulnerable was last seen leaving her home on Tuesday morning (February 14).

Officers have conducted house to house enquiries and search team officers with dogs have searched a significant area of West Sussex since Laurel was reporting missing. They have been joined by the NPAS helicopter, drones and the volunteer specialist Sussex search teams.

Chief Superintendent Howard Hodges said: “We would like to thank the public for the information which has been provided to us thus far. Our officers have been working around the clock pursuing multiple lines of enquiry and are determined to find Laurel.

“We are working closely with Laurel’s family, offering them support and providing them with regular updates on the investigation. They too have also appealed for information to help find her, stating they just want to bring her home safely.


“Laurel was last seen wearing a grey puffer jacket, a turquoise fleece, a maroon tartan scarf and a brown hat. Laurel is around 5’4” with grey/blonde highlighted hair and sometimes wears glasses.

“As part of our appeal, we would be grateful if residents in the Walberton and Slindon areas could check their outbuildings for any sightings of Laurel and ask anyone to come forward who has any CCTV footage or dashcam footage of someone matching Laurel’s description and to report it to us.”


Please report any information of Laurel’s whereabouts to us by calling 101 if it is non-urgent or ring 999 if it is urgent quoting Operation Accrue.
