Police say they are ‘increasingly concerned’ for the safety of a woman originally from York who has been missing from her London home for three days.
Sarah Everard, 33, had been at a friend’s house in Clapham on Wednesday (3 March). At about 9pm she began walking to her home address in Brixton.
She is thought to have walked across Clapham Common and was expected to arrive home approximately 50 minutes later.
She has not been seen or heard from since.
Although she moved to London after attending Durham University, Sarah is originally from York and went to Fulford School.
She still has family in York who are desperately waiting for news.
Today her family issued 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.”‘’
Sarah is 5ft 4in, with blonde hair and of slim build, and had a white iPhone and green in-ear Bluetooth headphones.
At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing a green rain jacket, navy blue trousers with a white diamond pattern, turquoise and orange trainers, and a white beanie hat.
She called her partner at 9.28pm on her walk home, but has not been heard from since.
Detective Chief Inspector Ian Kenward, from the Met Police, 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.”
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting CAD 3309/06MAR. Information can also be provided anonymously by calling the Missing People charity on 116 000.
Sarah’s friend Rose has described her as “beautiful, thoughtful and incredibly kind”.
Rose told the Brixton Blog: ““She has always been an exceptional friend, dropping everything to be there to support her friends, whenever they need her.”
