On Thursday 25 November 2021, a 40-year-old man from St Leonards-on-Sea was arrested on suspicion of murder.

Kent Police officers, with support from Sussex Police are carrying out searches in three locations in the Hastings and St Leonards-on-Sea area, as part of their work to locate Alexandra.

Residents can expect to see a heightened police presence in the area as enquiries continue.

Det Ch Insp Neil Kimber, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: ‘It is completely out of character for Alexandra not to contact her family and we are now treating this case as a potential murder.
‘While we continue our investigation, I would urge anyone who may have seen Alexandra or her white Mini Cooper with a black roof to contact us.
‘If you think you may have seen Alexandra or something suspicious but are not sure, please do not hesitate to call and let us know.’
