Laurel Aldridge: Body found in Sussex is missing sister-in-law of Mackenzie Crook, police confirm | UK News

Police say a body found in the search for the missing sister-in-law of actor Mackenzie Crook is that of Laurel Aldridge.

The 62-year-old was reported missing from her home in the village of Walberton, near Arundel in West Sussex, on 14 February.

Crook, who is known for roles in The Office, Pirates Of The Caribbean and Worzel Gummidge, had made public appeals to find Ms Aldridge, who was his wife’s older sister.

Sussex Police launched an 11-day search, which ended on Saturday when officers announced that a body had been found in the Tortington Lane area of the town.

Formal identification has now taken place, Sussex Police confirmed on Thursday.

In a statement, reported by ITV, her family described her as “a wonderful, creative, fiercely-intelligent person, who taught us all the meaning of empathy, dependability, and love”.

“We as a family are broken by what has happened, but we have each other, we have our friends, and we have the support of the local community, who have so kindly rallied around us during this difficult time.

“We will never forget what you have done for us.”

She is about five foot four, with grey/blonde highlighted hair, and sometimes wears glasses.

“She is considered to be very vulnerable and anyone with information of Laurel’s whereabouts is asked to report it to police,” the force said in an update.

Detective Sergeant Alan Fenn said he would be grateful if “residents in the Walberton and Slindon areas could check their outbuildings for any sightings of Laurel”.

He added: “Also, anyone who was in the Walberton area on Tuesday morning or has video footage of someone matching Laurel’s description is asked to report it to us.”

The local community is joining in the search, Crook has said. “A lot of people are looking in the local woodlands along the roads and stuff like that,” he told ITV.

Describing his sister-in-law’s disappearance as “very out of character”, he added that she had missed a chemotherapy session on the day she went missing.

“If I could appeal to everyone. Even if they checked before, check again in likely places where she might have crept in to lay down for the night.”
