Sarah Everard was last seen on 3 March in Clapham

Police are keeping an open mind about the disappearance of Sarah Everard in south London, but have appealed to the public for any video footage that might reveal a clue to her location.

The Metropolitan Police said during a briefing on Monday afternoon it was still considering “all possibilities” regarding Ms Everard’s disappearance.

The 33-year-old was last seen at about 9pm on 3 March in Clapham. Family members have said they are “desperate” to bring her home.

On Monday, Detective Chief Inspector Katherine Goodwin said: "This is definitely a missing person investigation at the moment but I remain open-minded as to all possibilities in the investigation.

"We are currently knocking on doors. We've spoken to over 750 different people and addresses have been visited.

"We continue to receive hundreds of calls from the public."

Det Ch Insp Goodwin asked members of the public to turn in any dashcam or similar footage they might have of the Poynders Road area at about 9pm last Wednesday.

Ms Everard was last seen wearing a green rain jacket, navy blue trousers with a white diamond pattern, and turquoise and orange trainers.

She left Leathwaite Road at about 9pm on to the A205 South Circular and is believed to have walked through Clapham Common towards her house in Brixton, a journey which ought to have taken some 50 minutes.

Footage that helped piece together those movements was found on a doorbell camera, detectives said at the weekend.

Anyone with information should call police on 0208 785 8244, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Also on Monday, Ms Everard’s uncle described her as “very sensible” and said her family was “desperate” for news.

Nick Everard told The Sun: “My brother and sister-in-law are beside themselves with worry.

“These are desperate times for the family. We know the police are doing everything they can but it's the not knowing what has happened after four days is agonising.”

A cream-coloured hat found on Clapham Common on Monday, similar to one Ms Everard was seen wearing, did not belong to her, it was reported.
