Sussex Police said that she regularly travelled by bus around Brighton and Hove and to other towns including Eastbourne and Worthing.

Inspector Jon Carter said: “Nellie is vulnerable due to her age and she also suffers from Alzheimer’s which can cause her to become confused.

“It’s now been three days since she was last seen and we’re very anxious to hear from anyone who thinks they may know where she is.

“Nellie has been a frequent visitor to the BHS café in Churchill Square, Brighton. She may have frequented other cafés and may make several visits in a short period of time.

“If anyone thinks they have seen Nellie then I would urge them to call police as soon as possible on 101.”
