A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder as worries grow for a mum who has been missing for more than 10 days.

Alexandra Morgan, 34, was last seen on November 14, filling up her Mini Cooper at a petrol station in Sissinghurst, near Cranbrook, Kent.

Her case was taken very seriously from the start, as it was ‘completely out of character for her not to contact her two children’.

Investigators arrested a 40-year-old man, from St Leonards-on-Sea, today.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Kimber said: ‘We are now treating this case as a potential murder.

‘While we continue our investigation, I would urge anyone who may have seen Alexandra or her white Mini Cooper with a black roof to contact us.

‘If you think you may have seen Alexandra or something suspicious but are not sure, please do not hesitate to call and let us know.

Officers believe finding Ms Morgan’s car will be an important part of solving this case.

The Mini Cooper was spotted driving between her home and the area of Hastings the same day she went missing as well as the next.

The manager of Ms Morgan’s local petrol station, Rose McAuley, 32, has known the mum for 17 years.

She said: ‘I dont think anybody knows whats happened to her or where shes gone. For her car not to be seen at all since then is a complete mystery.

‘A friend and I went around Hastings looking for it but didnt find anything.

‘Alex never gets embarrassed so I dont think its a case of her being afraid to come home. I just hope nothing bad has happened to her. I just hope shes okay and turns up. Its really worrying.’

Ms Morgan had apparently told Ms McAuley she wanted to go see her friend in Yorkshire but could do not that as her car needed repairing.

Ms McAuley went on: ‘Alex often comes in without any makeup on and in comfy clothes as this is her local shop, as you would.

‘Alex was really dolled up with a full face of makeup, her hair done and wearing nice clothes when she came in that Sunday looking very well presented.

‘She was more done up than Ive ever seen her before. And she came in very early in the morning which was unlike her.

‘Alex seemed in a good mood and was smiling. She was just your usual Alex tripping over the wet floor sign and laughing about it.’

Police have taken CCTV from the petrol shop and interviewed Ms McAuley.

The mum is described as being around five feet, six inches tall with a slim build and brown shoulder length hair.

She was wearing a green knee-length quilted coat, a black top and ripped blue jeans with knee-high black boots and a silver necklace when she vanished.
