Albanian girl missing from Worthing


Police in West Sussex are searching for 17-year old Junilda Koca, an Albanian national, who has not been seen since she left an address where she was staying in Worthing on the morning of Thursday January 8th.

Junilda, who looks older than 17, is described as 5′ 2″ with very long brown hair, brown eyes, and a pale complexion.

She was last seen wearing dark blue jeans, knee-length suede brown boots and a three-quarter length dark coat. She had with her two bags or holdalls, one of which is of Luis Vuitton style.

She had arrived unaccompanied at Gatwick from Albania on Tuesday January 6th and following an assessment by UK Immigration and police, working with social services, she was placed into local authority care while further enquiries were carried out.

Junilda doesn’t speak much English and has no contacts or next of kin in this country.  Police have been working with UK Immigration and missing person charities to try to trace her.

PC Mark Green said: “There is no evidence at this stage that Junilda has come to any harm, but we are increasingly concerrned for her welfare as her disappearance is unexplained and she is clearly vulnerable.

“If you have seen her or know where she may be, please contact us via or call 101 quoting Sussex serial 733 of January 8th.”
