CONCERNS are growing for a missing mum whose car was today found abandoned in Hampshire.

Debbie Ward was last seen leaving her home in Bognor Regis, West Sussex, yesterday lunch time in her T-reg Toyota Landcruiser.

The 41-year-old – who has been depressed recently - was reported missing just hours later.

Her car was found at lunchtime today parked with the keys still in the ignition and windows open, at a quay in Langstone, between Havant and Hayling Island.

Hampshire Constabulary has been working with colleagues in Sussex and officers are searching the mudflats and other open areas around Langstone Harbour.

She is white, 5ft 9ins, with green eyes and long blonde straight hair.

PC Heather Mackay of the West Sussex Missing Persons Unit said: "We are very concerned about Debbie and anyone who has seen her or knows where she might be is asked to contact us right away.”
