Police have released a CCTV image of Sarah Everard, 33, as they seek information to help find her following her disappearance on March 3 on her walk home from a friend’s house in Clapham, south London, at 9pm.
Specialist officers have widened their search to include the ponds at Clapham Common and have issued a picture of Sarah wearing a covid mask, a beanie hat and the bright coloured clothes that she was last seen in walking between Clapham Common and Brixton on Wednesday.
London Search and Rescue volunteers have joined the Metropolitan Police who are appealing for help from the public.
Detective Chief Inspector Ian Kenward, from the Central South Public Protection Team, 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.
“I would ask anybody who was in the Clapham Common area on Wednesday night to think about whether you saw Sarah or any suspicious activity around the time of her disappearance.”
Police are asking people in the following areas to check doorbell or dashcam footage for any sightings of Sarah: The A205 South Circular around Clapham Common, Cavendish Road, New Park Road, Brixton Hill and Brixton Water Lane.
Sarah was wearing a green rain jacket, navy blue trousers with a white diamond pattern and turquoise and orange trainers. She is also believed to have had green earphones and a white beanie hat on.
Specialist officers and volunteers from London Search and Rescue have been carrying out searches in the area of Clapham Common and the walking route between Clapham and Brixton.
Sarah left her friend’s house in Leathwaite Road at around 9pm through a back gate onto the A205 South Circular and began walking towards her home in Brixton. She is thought to have walked across Clapham Common and the journey was expected take under an hour. It is unclear if she actually returned home. She has not been seen or heard from since.
Sarah’s family released this statement: “With every day that goes by we are getting more worried about Sarah. She is always in regular contact with us and with her friends and it is totally out of character for her to disappear like this. We long to see her and want nothing more than for her to be found safe and well.
“We are so grateful to the police and all our friends for all they are doing. We are desperate for news and if anyone knows anything about what has happened to her, we would urge you to please come forward and speak to the police. No piece of information is too insignificant.”
