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

The Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate is investigating, saying that the disappearance was "completely out of character" and is now being treated as suspicious and a potential murder.

Yesterday, a 53-year-old man from Hastings was arrested on suspicion of murder and taken into custody, where he remains while inquiries continue.

His arrest follows on from the arrest of a 40-year-old man from St Leonards-on-Sea, who was arrested the day before on suspicion of murder. He also remains in custody.

Investigators are continuing to appeal for anyone who may have information which can assist with their inquiries and have released a photo of her white Mini Cooper, which has a black roof and the registration number MF55 YHM.

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 the mum. A fourth area is being searched in Sevenoaks Weald, Kent.

Residents have been warned expect to see a heightened police presence in the area as inquiries 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.
