Sussex Police: 29 May, 2018
We're making checks to try to trace Newhaven teenager Trent Hutchinson, who has been missing from his home address since Thursday last week (24 May).
Trent, 15, is described as white, 5'4", of slim build, with blue eyes and short straight mousey hair. He is left-handed and may be wearing a black waterproof top and black trousers, and carrying a rucksack.
He was last seen at 9.20pm on Thursday and reported missing almost two hours' later the same evening. Police think he may be in the Newhaven or Lewes areas and staying with friends.
Officers have stressed that it is important that Trent comes forward so that they be certain he is safe and well. They have also asked that anyone knowing where Trent is or who sees him gets in touch without delay, either by reporting details online or by phoning 101, quoting serial 1365 of 24/05. Share
* WARNING *
Hannah: Apologies to post such a worrying and negative post while enjoying this lovely weather, however I would just like to make parents aware.
My 13 year old daughter and her 13 year old cousin were approached by a black Audi as they were walking up from the Undercliff to the main road (next to the public toilets - Saltdean) at approximately 17.40 this afternoon.
The car drove down the slope from the main road and parked opposite the toilets. The car had black tinted windows. There were 5 men in the car.
My daughter and her cousin described the men as Asian ageing from approximately 30 - 45, the driver was thick set and appeared to be the oldest.
They opened the passenger windows of the car and my daughter and her cousin believed they were either filming them or taking photos of them with their mobile phones. The front passenger and passenger in the back seat then called to them also making hand gestures to approach the car. The car only drove away when luckily a lady appeared walking her dog.
They are home and safe although they were both extremely distressed and we have had lots of tears! I have reported the incident to the police.

A young woman found dead in her tent on a campsite in Seaford on Sunday (13th May 2018) has been named as 21 year old Sarah Clayton from Littlehampton.
A 28 year old man known to the victim has been arrested in connection with the incident.
Sussex Police are asking for anyone who may have been in the near-by area between midnight and 6:30am to come forward, they are particularly interested in anyone who may have used the footpath leading to the campsite entrance just off of Marine Parade in Seaford around those times.
They are also interested in speaking with anyone who may have been at the 50th birthday party on the campsite that weekend.
Contact Sussex Police by phoning 101 and quoting Operation Cobblestone.
ZoneZine: Our deepest sympathies go out to Sarah's family and friends.
Brighton & Hove City Council: Can you help us help rough sleepers?
Suitable accommodation for rough sleepers to stay overnight is needed for a new service being set up by the council.
To help shape the proposals, the first step is to find a suitable venue which is available for up to a year.
The type of premises we can secure will be a major factor on how the service develops. This year’s annual budget saw £165,000 allocated towards exploring and establishing more help for rough sleepers.
Brighton & Hove City Council: Great to hear Healthmatic Ltd has begun its audit of the city’s public loos as promised. Regional manager Ajay has already met a local Councillor and café owner to discuss Rottingdean’s loos. New doors, hand driers and an early summer spruce up are on the way.
ZoneZine: Are these toilets satisfactory? Are there any other improvements you'd like to see rolled out here?
Can you help us find Elle-Mai Dunford, 14, who is missing from Seaford?
She is white, about 5’5”, of stocky build, with very long blonde hair, and wears large hoop earrings.
If you see her, please report it online or call 101, quoting serial 1374 of 09/05
