THE family of a woman who went missing three years ago are renewing their appeal for information.

Fatima Mohamed-Ali was 52 when she disappeared from her home in Newhaven on February 12 2016.

The mother-of-three and grandmother was last seen by a passerby at about 8am that morning in Avis Road, Newhaven.

Her family is marking the third anniversary of her disappearance by joining with the charity Missing People and renewing the appeal for information.

Mohamed Mohamed-Ali, Fatima’s husband, said, “If anyone knows where Fatima is or what has happened to her, please come forward and contact the police on 101 or contact Missing People on 116 000.

“I want to extend our gratitude to the charity for all of the media publicity that has been done for Fatima.

“I hope that this will jog someone’s memory and leads people to come forward with new information so that we can find Fatima.”

Fatima is of Asian appearance, 5ft 2in tall and slim.

At the time of her disappearance, she had shoulder-length black hair worn in a ponytail and it is thought she was wearing a traditional Indian dress underneath a beige coat.

Missing People publicity coordinator Ian Roullier said: “Fatima, if you are reading this, please call or text us on our free phone number, 116 000.

“It’s confidential and we can’t trace your call.

“We just want to provide you with the support you need and help you to be safe.

“The helpline is here to support people who are missing or thinking of going missing and their loved ones who are left behind.”

If anyone has seen Fatima, they should contact Missing People anonymously by calling 116 000 or by emailing or call the police on 101.

The charity’s helpline is operated by staff and volunteers.

It is free to contact and is open 24 hours a day.

Sightings and information about any missing person can also be given anonymously through the Missing People website at
