Daughter's appeal for missing mum with links to Cumbria and Lancaster

Lancaster And Morecambe Citizen: Sandra Hall Sandra Hall

THE daughter of a missing Sussex woman with connections to Cumbria and Lancaster says she 'just wants her back'.

Sandra Hall, 56, of Bognor Regis, has not been seen since 10.20am on February 3, when she left to go to church.

She was seen on a train between Bognor Regis and Barnham but has not been seen since she left the station.

Officers are investigating a possible sighting in a Lancaster supermarket at around 12pm on Friday.

Police said Sandra suffered from depression and explained that she had connections to Lancaster and Cumbria as well as West Sussex, where she lives.

Sandra's daughter, Emma Cullingford, said: "My mum suffers from depression but she has touched the lives of so many people she has met or befriended over the years in West Sussex, Lancaster and Cumbria.

"She is a generous, loving spirit always prepared to go that extra mile to help and support others.

"She is deeply loved by her family, who hope that she remains safe and can re-start her life with the care and support she needs to start flourishing again. We just want her back."

Inspector Nick Bowman, who is leading the investigation in West Sussex, said: "A friend of Sandra's thought she saw her in the supermarket but was unable to speak to her and confirm it was her.

"We are hoping someone in the area might have seen her and can help us confirm this is Sandra.

"It is very out of character for Sandra to be out of touch with her family for so long and they are obviously very concerned and want her to return home."

Sandra was last seen wearing a knee-length black and white tweed coat, a scarf and black hat.

If you have seen Sandra or know of her whereabouts, contact Sussex Police on 101 quoting Operation Leeson.

She used to live in my house, many many years ago and we get letters for her from Australia every Christmas - if someone could supply an address/person to send the latest letter to it may be nice for her to see when she gets home.
