Police are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a vulnerable Eastbourne woman, who went missing at 1pm on Monday (7 October) and who has still not been traced.
Sophie Orell, 25, is autistic and suffers from mental illness. She failed to return to a care home where she lives and despite an extensive overnight search, she remains outstanding.
Sophie is described as having shoulder-length blonde hair and wears glasses. Her clothing is believed to include a fluffy white jumper, bearing an Olaf the Snowman logo, black leggings and grey trainers.
A police spokesperson said: “Sophie has no money or mobile phone with her, but does have a bus pass worn on a lanyard. She is not thought to have a change of clothing with her.It is vital that anyone seeing her or having knowledge of where she might be contacts us without delay .
“We would encourage them to do so by phoning police on 999, quoting serial 652 of 07/10.”
