The sister of a missing woman whose car was found near Beachy Head is begging her to make contact.
Michaela Pugh, 37, a Slovakian national who has been living in Guildford for several years, has not been seen by family or friends since the afternoon of February 12.
A black Lexus belonging to Michaela was found near Beachy Head on February 14 and Surrey police officers are working with Sussex Police colleagues to locate Michaela as a matter of urgency to ensure she is safe and well.
Michaela’s sister Denisa, who has flown over to the UK from Slovakia, has issued the following message to Michaela: ‘Miška! Prosím, ozvi sa niekomu. Všetci sa bojíme o Teba. Som tu v UK. Čakám Ťa a prišla som za Tebou. Chýbaš mi. Tvoja sestra.’
The English translation of this message reads: ‘Miška! Please, can you let someone know where you are. We are worried about you. I am in the UK. I came for you and I am waiting for you. I miss you very much. Your sister.’
Michaela is described as white, 5ft 4ins tall, slim, with dark brown hair and brown eyes. She is believed to have been wearing a Parka style coat and black leggings.
Officers would also like to speak to anyone who has seen a woman matching Michaela’s description or who may have seen a woman using the phone box at the National Trust site in Birling Gap over the weekend of February 13 and 14.
Anyone who has seen Michaela or with any information on her current whereabouts should call Surrey Police as a matter of urgency on 101, quoting reference 4516001278, or call or text the charity Missing People on 116 000.
