Investigators remain keen to hear from anyone who may have information which can assist with their enquiries and have released a photo of her white Mini Cooper, which has a black roof and the registration number MF55 YHM.

They have established that, on Sunday 14 and Monday 15 November, the vehicle made journeys between her home and towards the Hastings area.

Kent Police officers, with support of Sussex Police are carrying out searches at three locations in the Hastings and St Leonards-on-Sea area, as part of their work to locate Alexandra. A further search is taking place at a location in Sevenoaks Weald.

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.’
