A second man has been arrested after a mum-of-two’s “suspicious” and “out-of-character” disappearance.

Alexandra Morgan, 34, from Sissinghurst, in Kent, was last seen at a petrol station near Cranbrook just before 7.30am on Sunday November 14.

She has not been in contact with her family since then, which is “completely out of character”, Kent Police said.

Detectives are treating the “suspicious” case as a potential murder enquiry, with two men arrested on suspicion of murder currently in custody.

A 53-year-old man, from Hastings, East Sussex, was arrested yesterday, police announced today.

A 40-year-old man from St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex, was arrested on Thursday.
