Sussex Police release new photo of a man who's been missing from Hove for more than 2 months


Police are trying to trace 42 year old Keith Miller who hasn't been taking his medication he was last seen in Hove on 29 March.

Police received a report of a possible sighting of Keith on the A272, Midhurst, near the Cowdray Park Golf Club at around 3.30pm yesterday (2 June), walking from Petworth towards Midhurst.

Detective Constable Scott Moore said: "We are concerned for Keith Miller's well-being, as he has a mental health condition and he would not have been taking his medication. We're looking into yesterday's possible sighting and continue to work closely with other Forces in areas connected to Keith.

"Keith regularly takes walks in the countryside and also likes the seaside and woods, so it is possible he is currently in this type of area. I'm asking people to look closely at the photos of Keith. If you believe you may have recently seen him, please contact us immediately."

Keith is described as white, 5' 10" with short, straight fair hair, clean shaven with a pale complexion and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing jeans and a T-shirt.

The search for Keith has been extended to include other areas he has connections to, including Kent and Hampshire, where he was seen in the Portsmouth and Winchester areas. He had been living in London W9, but had been in the Hove area for some days before his disappearance.

Keith owns a red Land Rover, registration F236UBJ and on Wednesday 5 May it was found in Avenue Road, Sevenoaks, near Knole Park. It was parked and secure and there were signs that someone had been living inside it. It is believed to have been in that area since 3 April and he may therefore still be in and around the Sevenoaks area.
