The family of a 96-year-old woman with Alzheimer's who has been missing for six months have compiled a tribute to her life in the hope new information will surface.

Nellie Herriot, from central Brighton, was reported missing on 25 April.

Her great nephew George Holland has put together a website with a selection of photographs taken throughout her life.

Nellie was last seen on the 1a bus, in Brighton, where CCTV footage shows her getting off in the Whitehawk area.

Reported sightings

Police initially used specialist search teams and investigated scores of reported sightings, but began scaling down their search in June.

They said her bus pass had been found in her flat, but it was not known whether Ms Herriot had any money with her.

She is described as white, 4ft 9in tall, of a thin, fragile build with straight white collar-length hair.
