The family of a woman who went missing in south London earlier this week have appealed to the public for information about her disappearance.

Sarah Everard, 33, was last seen setting off home to Brixton at around 9pm on Wednesday evening after visiting a friend in Clapham.

In a statement, her family said they were “getting more worried” about her with every passing day, as it was “totally out of character” for her not to be in touch with them.

“We long to see her and want nothing more than for her to be found safe and well,” they said.

Ms Everard’s family added that they are “desperate for news” and urged anyone with any information to come forward to the police. “No piece of information is too insignificant,” they said.

The Met Police believe she left her friend’s house on Leathwaite Road before walking across Clapham Common. However, the force does not know if she returned home.

When she was last seen, the 33-year-old was wearing a green rain jacket, navy blue trousers with a white diamond pattern, and turquoise and orange trainers, according to Scotland Yard.

The force has released a CCTV image of her to help with their search efforts.

Detective Chief Inspector Ian Kenward said: “Sarah’s disappearance is completely out of character and understandably her family and friends are incredibly worried.

“We are also growing increasingly concerned for her welfare and have officers working round the clock to try and find her.”

He urged anyone in the Clapham Common area on Wednesday night to think about whether they saw Ms Everard or noticed any suspicious activity taking place.

“People who may have footage or were in the following areas are being urged to check cameras: the A205 South Circular around Clapham Common, Cavendish Road, New Park Road, Brixton Hill and Brixton Water Lane,” he added.

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting CAD 3309/06MAR, or call the Missing People charity anonymously on 116 000.
