Missing Tiina Parffitt

Police have put out new CCTV pictures of a woman, missing from Brighton.

50-year-old Tiina Profitt was reported missing from her home in Fiveways on Friday, and cameras picked her up at shops in Woodbourne Avenue that afternoon.

Searches have been carried out across the city.

However there has since been no sign of Tiina, and both police and her family are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare.

A number of Sussex Police officers and Sussex Search and Rescue volunteers have scoured the city and its surroundings across the weekend. 

A police drone and the National Police Air Service helicopter have also assisted in the search.

Further searches of the city and its parks, fields, golf courses and woodland areas were conducted on Saturday, and members of the public - in particular those outdoors such as cyclists and dog walkers - are urged to keep an eye out for her.

Enquiries have also been made with local hotels and transport links.

Tiina is described as white, about 5’7”, of slim build, with short blonde thinning hair in a middle parting. She has a fair complexion and speaks with a Scandinavian accent.

She was last seen wearing loose fitting dark red jogging bottoms or trousers, a purple zipped hoodie and dark-coloured Gola trainers, and carrying a white tote bag.

Detective Inspector Emma Vickers said: “We now know Tiina was still in the area about 3pm on Friday, however her movements beyond that point remain a mystery. She has not come home and her family are desperate to hear from her.

“Tiina’s disappearance is out of character and she is not believed to be in possession of a mobile phone. She has had poor health recently and has become depressed, and has lost quite a lot of weight.

“We hope someone, somewhere, has seen her or knows where we can find her.

“Please, if you see anyone matching her description, report it online or call 101, or 999 in an emergency, quoting serial 1047 of 17/08.”
