Man, 40, charged with murder of missing mum-of-two Alexandra Morgan who vanished over 2 weeks ago

A MAN has been charged with murdering a mum-of-two who vanished 15 days ago.

Alexandra Morgan, 34, was last seen at a petrol station near Cranbrook, Kent, on November 14.

Police have today announced they have charged Mark Brown with murder.

The 40-year-old, from St-Leonards-on-Sea in East Sussex, will appear from custody at Medway Magistrates’ Court today.

A 53-year-old man also arrested on suspicion of murder has been released without charge.

Police are still searching for Alexandra's body after she disappeared more than two weeks ago.

They are scouring four locations in the Hastings and St Leonards-on-Sea area.

Alexandra has not been in contact with her family, which police say is "completely out of character".

Kent Police launched a murder probe last week.

Officers believe Alexandra's Mini – number plate MF55 YHM – is "key to establishing her whereabouts".

The car was seen making journeys between her home in Sissinghurst, Kent, and towards the Hastings area of East Sussex on November 14 and 15.

Petrol station manager Rose McAuley, 32, a friend of Ms Morgan's, served her when she topped up with £10-worth of fuel and bought coffee and a snack on the morning of her disappearance.

She said of the last time she saw her friend of 17 years: “She was more done up than I’ve ever seen her before.

“And she came in very early in the morning which was unlike her.”

Police are urging anyone who has seen Alexandra or her car to get in touch.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Kimber, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: "It is completely out of character for Alexandra not to contact her family and we are now treating this case as a potential murder.

"While we continue our investigation, I would urge anyone who may have seen Alexandra or her white Mini Cooper with a black roof to contact us.

"If you think you may have seen Alexandra or something suspicious but are not sure, please do not hesitate to call and let us know."
