Georgina, 31, was last seen on March 7 in Clifton Wines in Clifton Road, Worthing, last year.

And despite Sussex Police following up more than 60 reported sightings of the mother-of-two, she has still not been found.

At 9.15am this morning, Georgina’s mother Andrea appeared on Crimewatch Roadshow Live on BBC One along with Chief Inspector Miles Ockwell from Sussex Police to appeal for information.

The programme showed CCTV footage from the last sighting of Georgina in the shop before she turned right out of the store and headed towards the seafront area - the last time she was seen.

Chief Inspector Ockwell reminded viewers that there is a £5,000 reward for information that could lead to her being found. He said: "Georgina's family are desperate to find her and we really do need that piece of information, that golden nugget, that is going to give us that lead."
