A WOMAN has earned notoriety because an application on a missing Iphone has taken a photo of her.

The woman gazes confusedly into the camera lens in the photo and is bordered by what is being described as a large sunroof.

The photo was taken automatically by an app on an Iphone that had been stolen. The app was not named by the police but could be one of many.

No one is saying that the woman stole the Iphone, only that she apparently was the first person to try to unlock it since it went missing or was stolen from a Brighton nightclub.

"The owner of the camera has a rather cool app that takes a picture of anyone who tries to unlock it, maps their current location and then sends all the info back to the owner in an e-mail," said PC Gavin Crute of the Sussex Police.

"We know where and when the photo was taken and it appears to be in a vehicle with quite a large sunroof. We don't know that the woman is the person who stole the camera, but she obviously has had some connection with it in the meantime and I'd like to speak to her about it."

If you are her, know her, or know anything else about the missing Iphone you are encouraged to call Sussex Police on 101. µ
