Andrea Gharsallah started this petition to Katy Bourne Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner and

My name is Andrea Gharsallah.

My daughter, Georgina Gharsallah, has been missing since 7th March 2018 and we are highly unsatisfied with the whole investigation by Sussex Police in to my daughter's missing case to date.

Sussex Police have evidently made disastrous decisions throughout this investigation which has hindered rather than helped the investigation into my daughter's disappearance.

We have asked Sussex Police many times to answer the following questions, which unfortunately have repeatedly been ignored. We demand answers to how exactly these so-called 'strategic decisions' were made and by whom.

  • Why has Sussex Police limited their investigations to the Clifton Rd, Worthing area in Georgina's case for the first 18 months, when infact Sussex Police themselves have proven in August 2019 those were the wrong decisions, as they discovered new CCTV showing Georgina with an unknown female to have been in Worthing Town Centre on the afternoon of the day she disappeared ? 
  • What is being done by Sussex Police to find the unknown female in the CCTV footage with Georgina on the afternoon of the 7th March 2018?
  • Why have we never seen evidence of CCTV of Georgina with the unknown female being subject to expert analysis by Sussex Police.  Expert analysis may shed light on the identity of the female with Georgina in the CCTV?
  • Why has Sussex Police refused several requests by our family throughout this investigation to carry out a reconstruction of Georgina's last movements? (Which, incidently, left us no choice but to carry out our own reconstruction in December 2019)
  • Why has Sussex Police refused several requests by our family throughout this investigation to carry out a joined TV appeal for information relating to Georgina's disappearance?
  • Why have Sussex Police always refused and never mobilised a search with Sussex Search & Rescue, Drones, Dog Unit and/or Coastguard agency regarding Georgina's case?

In September 2020 we met with a Review officer and Dectective Super Intendent Emma Heater of Sussex Police to discuss the findings from a review into the handling of Georgna's missing case by Sussex Police. The review stated that 27 failures were found in the investigation since Georgina disappared; with 13 failures relating to missed opportunities regarding CCTV footages. 

We believe that the failures regarding CCTV in this case may have prevented a positive outcome relating to Georgina or, at the least, prevented some possible answers from coming to light. 

We ask Sussex Police to arrange a joined media appeal with my family to take place as soon as possible in which the public and the media are able to publicly ask Sussex Police questions relating to their failures in this investigation. 

Furthermore, we ask Sussex Police's investigation and conduct into my daughter Georgina Gharsallah's disappearance to be reviewed by an outside independent body.

We appeal to Priti Patel, Home Secretary & Member of Parliament UK,  to intervene and call for a public enquiry into the failings by Sussex Police regarding the case of Missing Georgina Gharsallah.
