Detectives investigating the disappearance of a woman from Sissinghurst have located her missing car.

Officers have now recovered the white Mini Cooper belonging to Alexandra Morgan and are no longer appealing to the public for their assistance in the search to find it. 

On Tuesday 30 November 2021, Mark Brown appeared at Lewes Crown Court charged with the murder of Alexandra. He was remanded to appear at a hearing before the same court on 9 May 2022. 

Mr Brown, 40, from St Leonards-on-Sea in East Sussex, was charged shortly before midnight on Sunday 28 November, following authorisation from the Crown Prosecution Service.

Ongoing investigation

Mother of two, Alexandra was last seen at a petrol station near Cranbrook at 7.20am on Sunday 14 November, and has not been in contact with her family since.

An investigation by officers from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate resulted in the arrest of Mr Brown on Thursday 25 November in connection with her disappearance.

Enquiries to locate Alexandra’s body remain ongoing with searches continuing with support from Sussex Police in several locations in Kent and Sussex.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Kimber, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: ‘While a man has been charged, the investigation continues and we remain keen to hear from anyone who may have information which can assist with our enquiries.’
