Police are concerned for the safety of a woman missing from Hove for almost two weeks.

Fifty-one-year-old Julie Ella was last seen at her home on August 14, said police, and the last sighting of her was at St Neots railway station in Cambridgeshire on Thursday, August 23.

Police said it is believed she had intended to go to London, but this has not been confirmed, so she may have been in central London or Cambridgeshire since last being seen.

A police spokesman described Julie as white, five feet five inches tall, with dark brown, wavy, shoulder-length hair and last seen wearing a grey Billabong coat, grey leggings and white Nike trainers with pink detail. The spokesman said she was carrying a large grey rucksack and a Bag for Life.

There is increasing concern for Julie as she is vulnerable, said police, and although there are no suspicious circumstances around her disappearance it is important that she should be found as soon as possible.

Anybody who sees Julie or knows where she is should contact Sussex Police on 101 or online, quoting serial 728 of 21/08 - or local police.
