Office star Mackenzie Crook’s desperate plea to find relative missing for a week

The Office star Mackenzie Crook has issued a heartfelt plea to help track down his sister-in-law who mysteriously vanished last week.

Laurel Aldridge, 62, went missing from her home in the Arundel area of West Sussex and also skipped a chemotherapy session.

She did not have her keys or phone with her, according to Mackenzie, and he also said that her chemo “may have triggered a crisis in her”.

Since her disappearance, Mackenzie has called on the public to help find her and in another plea, he said today: “She left the house with nothing but what she was wearing, with no keys and no phone.

“She has not been seen since.

“She missed her fifth chemo session last Tuesday and we think that is what has triggered some sort of crisis in her and she has gone off for a long walk somewhere.”

The Pirates of the Caribbean star, 51, added: “We are really clutching at straws now after a week.”

Police have issued some images of Laurel wearing a turquoise fleece, maroon tartan scarf and a brown hat. She also had a grey puffer jacket with her.

Last week Mackenzie said her disappearance was “out of character”.

Sussex Police said last night: “Officers have conducted house-to-house enquiries and search team officers with dogs have searched a significant area of West Sussex since Laurel was reporting missing.

“They have been joined by the NPAS helicopter, drones and the volunteer specialist Sussex search teams.”

Chief Superintendent Howard Hodges said: "We would like to thank the public for the information which has been provided to us thus far.

“Our officers have been working around the clock pursuing multiple lines of enquiry and are determined to find Laurel.

"We are working closely with Laurel's family, offering them support and providing them with regular updates on the investigation.

“As part of our appeal, we would be grateful if residents in the Walberton and Slindon areas could check their outbuildings for any sightings of Laurel and ask anyone to come forward who has any CCTV footage or dashcam footage of someone matching Laurel's description and to report it to us.

"Please report any information of Laurel’s whereabouts to us by calling 101 if it is non-urgent or ring 999 if it is urgent quoting Operation Accrue."
