"That's in the Walberton area where a lot of people are looking in the local woodlands along the roads and stuff like that.

"I'd really like to appeal to people to go out into their back gardens and have a look in places where she might have taken rest."

Mackenzie, who played Gareth in The Office, said the family is "obviously really worried" as the search continues.

He confirmed Laurel was wearing a bright blue fleece which had a grey coat over it, a brown woolly hat, a turtle scarf and black trousers.

Mackenzie added: "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."

Laurel's son-in-law Charlie Wheeler also issued an appeal after she was last seen leaving her home at around 7.20am.

He said: "We saw her on the Ring doorbell and all she had was warm clothes on her, but she didn't have any keys, she didn't have any cards, she didn't take the car, she didn't take her dogs and she's just vanished.

"She's currently undergoing chemo treatment and we’re worried she might be having some sort of mental health episode."

Sussex Police are urging anyone who sees Laurel to come forward.

A statement on Wednesday said: "We're growing increasingly concerned for Laurel Aldridge, who has been missing from Walberton, near Arundel, since yesterday.

"She may have travelled as far north as Bignor Hill, and we're urging anyone who sees her to please call 999 quoting 347 of 14/02."
