Officers say the 38 year old Brighton woman was at a bus stop, believed to be at Steyning clock tower in the town centre, on the evening of Thursday September 20th and engaged in conversation with the three other people who were there, a woman with blonde hair, and two men.

One of the men is described as white, of skinny build, with short hair, wearing jogging bottoms, dark upper clothing and white trainers. He spoke with a local accent.
