Abstract : A total of 628$\invpb$ of data collected with the ALEPH detector at centre-of-mass energies from 189 to 209\,GeV is analysed in the search for gauge mediated SUSY breaking (GMSB) topologies. These topologies include two acoplanar photons, non-pointing single photons, acoplanar leptons, large impact parameter leptons, detached slepton decay vertices, heavy stable charged sleptons and multi-leptons plus missing energy final states. No evidence is found for new phenomena, and lower limits on masses of supersymmetric particles are derived. A scan of a minimal GMSB parameter space is performed and lower limits are set for the next-to-lightest supersymmetric particle (NLSP) mass at 54$\gevcc$ and for the mass scale parameter $\Lambda$ at 10$\tevcc$, independently of the NLSP lifetime. Including the results from the neutral Higgs boson searches, a NLSP mass limit of 77$\gevcc$ is obtained and values of $\Lambda$ up to 16$\tevcc$ are excluded.
