Police are extremely concerned about a student nurse who has been missing for more than three weeks.

Owami Davies, of Grays in Essex, left her home on Monday, July 4 and was last seen just after midnight on Thursday, July 7 in Derby Road, West Croydon.

Detectives investigating the 24-year-old's disappearance are extremely concerned for her welfare.

Police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen her on the night on Wednesday, July, 6, or the early hours of the next day.

Anyone with information about Owami's whereabouts is asked to call police on 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting the reference 22MIS025307.

Detective Constable Marie Spear, from the Missing Persons Unit in south London, said: "Owami's family have not heard from her for more than three weeks and she has not turned up to work.

"We are currently treating this as a missing person investigation. Owami was in a vulnerable state when she was last seen and we need the public's help in piecing together her movements on the night she went missing.

"I would urge anyone who has seen her, or knows where she is, to contact police immediately.

“I'd also ask people in the West Croydon area to check their sheds and outbuildings and report anything suspicious or out of the ordinary."
