Zena Purfield, who is originally from Bexhill, was visiting from Manchester and was due to stay in Sussex for a week from Saturday, October 8.

However she did not return to Manchester on Saturday (October 15) as planned.

Zena has since been spotted with friends in Bexhill and St Leonards.

She is described as white, 5’ 6” and of slim build with very long blonde hair which she often wears in a ponytail.

Zena was last seen wearing a blue hooded top and a jacket with a fur lined hood.

Missing persons co-ordinator Lynda Lynch said: “We just want to make sure Zena is ok.

“Although she has been spotted, she has yet to make contact with either police or her family.

“If you see Zena or have any information about her whereabouts please email [email protected] or call 101 quoting serial 1324 of 15/10.”
