Police have appealed for help in finding a West Sussex woman who has disappeared after going to the Middle East for work.

Karen Furlong, 46, from Worthing, flew to Doha in Qatar on 7 January, to work for the firm Nakfa Qatar Decorating.

She failed to make her return flight on January 27, prompting a Sussex Police appeal for information.

Pc Vikki Leech said: "It is unclear why Karen has not come home."

Ms Furlong travelled from Gatwick Airport to Qatar, via Istanbul and Dubai, on a Turkish Airlines Flight.

Police said at first she was in contact with relatives but she has since not been answering their telephone calls.
