Today marks a year since the disappearance of missing woman Helen Slaughter.

Helen, 49, was last seen on CCTV leaving her home in Barnham around 6am on 1 November 2017.

She has not been seen or made contact with her family since this date. Her husband Ken has made an appeal, a year on, to ask for information and for her to come home.

Helen is 5’ 2”, of small build, with brown short hair and she normally wears glasses. She was last seen wearing dark jeans, a light-coloured fleece and a woolly hat. She has small tattoos on both arms; a bee, ladybird, also a letter H on the top of her left arm and a tortoise on the top of her right arm.

Inspector Ian Maloney from the Missing Persons team said: “Helen’s disappearance still remains extremely out of character for her and we are desperate to hear from her.

“We are urging the public to continue to keep a look out for her and would ask everyone to cast their minds back to see if they remember seeing Helen at the time of her disappearance.

“Did you notice Helen wandering the fields and wooded areas while out walking?

“Helen if you are reading this, we just to know that you are safe. Please get in contact with either us or your family.”
