News and appeals

News articles – There are no main news articles for Horsham with week, however Police are still concerned for the welfare of missing Georgina Gharsallah and I have therefore included this in the bulletin.

Family make heartfelt appeal for missing Worthing woman to return home

The family of Georgina Gharsallah have made an emotion plea for her safe return.

Mum, Andrea, was joined by Georgina’s younger sisters, Arij and Sonya, in a direct appeal to their missing family member.

Georgina, 30, was last seen in Worthing on the morning of March 7 wearing a grey jacket with a fur-lined hood.

She is white, 5’ 2”, with shoulder-length dark hair, often worn in a top knot, and has a Monroe-style piercing above her left lip.

It is believed she may still be around Worthing or she could have travelled to Brighton.
