A missing mother-of-two from Kent posted about a 'stalker' on her Facebook page years before her disappearance.
Alexandra Morgan, 34, went missing 12 days ago after last being seen at a Cranbrook petrol station and a 40-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of her murder yesterday.
She also posted 'Hi stalker' to her online profile in 2019 before requested the person stop 'stalking' her page.
Alexandra Morgan, 34, vanished 12 days ago on Remembrance Sunday in Kent
Officers in white boiler suits were said to have 'thoroughly' gone through the back garden of her rented bungalow in the village of Sissinghurst, Kent where neighbours believe she had lived with her two young sons for just over a year after moving in last June.
Her parents had previously lived just a few doors up but moved away during Covid.
Next door neighbour Jean Crisp, 92, said: 'I only ever really saw her during the summer playing with her children in the garden. But I've never spoken to her.
'I feel very sad about what's happened. And feel terrible for her children. They are so lovely.
'The first I knew of it was when police knocked on my door one evening to say my neighbour had gone missing. I was a bit worried really.
'Officers have been outside on and off ever since. And the police have been so thorough.
'You don't realise how attentive they are until some sort of dreadful thing like this happened. They're leaving no stone unturned.'
Another resident, Sue Skillen, 70, said: 'I used to often see her sitting in her front window when I walked past to do my shopping.
'She looked like a lovely woman. It's terrible.'
A desperate search was launched for the 34-year-old as she has not been in touch with her family since leaving a petrol garage near Cranbrook, Kent.
Petrol station manager Rose McAuley, 32, who is a friend of Alex's and was the last person known to have seen her before she vanished, said: 'Police came back in on Thursday to get 24 hours worth of our CCTV footage from Sunday to Monday.
'But they didn't tell us anything. I have no idea what's happened.
'It's a complete mystery. When I saw they were treating it as a suspected murder, I just didn't beliee it.
'It feels weird potentially being the last person to see her alive.
She was last seen at a Shell garage near Cranbrook, Kent, at 7.20am on that Sunday
'If I didn't work here, it wouldn't be as bad. But because everyone's seen the news of her coming in here, everyone's asking about it and I just can't escape from it.
'I was expecting Alex to come home as she wouldn't leave her kids. That's what worried everyone.'
While in the petrol station at 7.20am, Ms Morgan bumped into her local mechanic Daniel Moakes at the coffee machine.
She complained her black roofed mini wasn't working properly and would book it in for repair after a weekend away. But she never did.
Mr Moakes, 48, who has owned Ashwal MOT Centre for eight years, said: 'She spoke to me on the Sunday morning before she disappeared. I bumped into her getting a coffee in the petrol station.
'Alex said she would book her car in when she got back from a weekend away as it was misfiring and wasn't working right. But she never did.
'I don't think she told me where she was planning on going or for how long. She seemed fine and was perfectly happy chatting away.
'I knew her well from when she used to work in the petrol station and the gym up in Cranbrook too. She had a dog grooming business and I would bump into her on walks.
Since then there has been no sign of her, with her family extremely worried about her safety
'It makes me feel sick that I was potentially one of the last people to see her and has very much been playing on my mind.'
Kent Police said the investigation is being treated as a murder probe and a 40-year-old man from St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex had been arrested on suspicion of murder yesterday.
Detective Chief Inspector Neil Kimber, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said today: 'It is completely out of character for Alexandra not to contact her family and we are now treating this case as a potential murder.'
A photo of her white car with a black roof with the registration number MF55 YHM was issued by officers as part of the hunt to find Ms Morgan.
CCTV of Ms Morgan inside the petrol station was also published yesterday (Wed).
Investigators established that on Sunday November 14 and Monday 15 the car made journeys between her home and towards the Hastings area in East Sussex.
