Police have released the last known footage of a nurse who is feared to have been kidnapped. 

Owami Davies, 24, can be seen walking down a London road on July 7, not long before she vanished.

Two people have been arrested on suspicion of murder and three on suspicion of abduction over the course of the investigation into her disappearance.

The student health worker was captured on a camera at around 12.30pm on Derby Road, West Croydon.

She was wearing a dark jacket, red Adidas T-shirt, light grey joggers, slider type shoes and was carrying a white handbag over her shoulder.

Her family said she had recently secured a job with Guy’s and St Thomas’ health trust and worked in A&E during the Covid-19 crisis.

The Met said she had left her family home in Grays, Essex, three days earlier on July 4 and was earlier described as being in a ‘vulnerable state’ at the time.

Investigators have previously appealed for the driver of a white van that was parked in Derby Road when Owami was last seen to come forward.

She and a man crossed the road just as the van pulled out.

Detective chief inspector Nigel Penney, who is leading the investigation, said: ‘This latest CCTV shows Owami wearing a distinctive red top and heading towards the Norbury area.

‘I would ask members of the public who were in this area, or nearby roads, to think back and call us if they remember seeing Owami and please do not underestimate how important your call could be.’

The area’s chief superintendent, Dave Stringer, said: ‘I can assure our community that all we can do to find Owami is being done.

‘We are working closely with our colleagues in Specialist Crime, who are used to dealing with large, complex investigations and we are providing them all the assistance we can in this extensive inquiry.

‘Everyone, I am sure, is hoping that Owami is safe and well and this nightmare for her friends and family will finally end.’

Owami’s mother Nicol Davies has made public appeals through the police for help finding her daughter.

She said: ‘This is such a terrible time for all those who love Owami and I am pleading for anyone who can help find her to contact police.

‘Every day we hope to hear the news that Owami is coming back to us, your help might make it so.’
