Missing from Uckfield - Chloe Newman

Missing Uckfield schoolgirl has been found safe and well

Update on Friday, January 17, 8.30pm: Schoolgirl Chloe Newman from Uckfield has been found safe and well.

Police say the 14-year-old contacted police after they asked members of the public and media to help find her.

Superintendent Laurence Taylor said: “Chloe has got in touch with us tonight and officers are talking to her to find out where she has been over the last ten days.

“I’d like to thank the public and the media for helping us find her.”

Our report from earlier today: Police looking for missing schoolgirl Chloe Newman have arrested three people on suspicion of child abduction.

A 33-year-old woman, a 16-year-old boy and a 22-year-old man, all from Newhaven, were arrested yesterday (Thursday, 16 January) by officers searching for Chloe.

They were questioned before being released on bail until 11 April while officers carry out further inquiries.

Detectives also searched a home in Gibbon Road, Newhaven.

Detective Inspector Gavin Patch said: “Chloe has been missing for more than a week and we are becoming increasingly concerned about her welfare.

“We are now treating her as a high-risk missing person because of her age, the length of time she has been missing and the fact that she has been associating with older people.

“If you have seen Chloe or have any information about where she could be, please contact us urgently.”

Chloe, from Uckfield, was last seen for certain getting into a black car at Haywards Heath railway station at 2.50pm on Tuesday, 7 January.

Several people have said they think they may have seen her since then but none of them have been confirmed.

When Chloe went missing she was wearing a pink hooded jacket with a black sleeveless jacket, black trousers, blue Vans and large curtain ring earrings. She is slim and had her long blonde hair up in a ponytail.

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 842 of 7/1, email101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
