Police officers search for nearly naked woman in Hove

Posted On 11 Jul 2013 at 6:05 pm

Police have been searching for a naked or nearly naked woman along the Hangleton stretch of the A27 Brighton bypass.

Two drivers heading east separately reported seeing the dark-haired woman at about 4am today (Thursday 11 July) between the Hangleton and Devil’s Dyke slip roads in Hove.

Sussex Police said that officers had been searching the area since the sightings and called in extra search teams and a police helicopter during the morning.

The search has since been called off for the woman who was described as in her early twenties and who one driver said was wearing only her bra and pants.

Inspector David Robinson 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.”
