Police are continuing their search for missing 33-year-old Sarah Everard.
Police continue searching for missing Sarah Everard: Sarah, from London, went missing last week. Police say that they remain “open minded to all possibilities” since her disappearance. Leading the Metropolitan police’s investigation, DCI 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.”
She went missing after leaving a friend’s home in Clapham to walk the 50 minute journey back to Brixton on Wednesday. She has not been seen since. The last sighting of her was on a private door camera as she walked to Tulse Hill, just south of Brixton. On Monday Goodwin said her officers had viewed hours of CCTV footage in the hope of tracing her movements that night.
Her mobile phone signal was last registered in a small park, Agnes Riley gardens, and police are concentrating their search around that area. Police divers have searched a pond in the park while sniffer dogs have also been deployed. She was last seen wearing a green waterproof jacket, navy-blue trousers with a white diamond pattern, and turquoise and orange trainers.
She may also have been wearing green earphones and a white beanie hat.
Efforts to find Everard continue, with Goodwin saying “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. We’ve received over a hundred calls so far.”
Sarah, a marketing manager, moved to London about 12 years ago. She has a brother and a sister who also live in the city. Their parents have traveled down from York to join with the search. Her family released a statement saying “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.”
