She is described as being in a her early twenties and with dark hair.
Officers have been searching the area since then, with a force helicopter joining the search effort this morning.
Inspector David Robinson, of Sussex Police, said: "We do not know how or why she came to be there, and there is no evidence of any collision along that stretch.
"But naturally we are very concerned for her welfare and safety. The road runs through a wide expanse of downland so that is being searched too.
"If you also saw her, or know who she might be, or if you are that woman, please call us right away on 101 quoting serial 0148 of 11/7."
