Detectives ‘extremely concerned’ for missing student nurse Owami Davies

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police have issues an appeal for information on the whereabouts of Owami Davies, a 24-year-old student nurse who has been missing for over three weeks.

Ms Davies of Grays, Essex was last seen on 7 July at 00:03 on Derby Road, West Croydon after having left her family home on 4 July.

Detectives have said that they are ‘very concerned’ for Ms Davies’ welfare and are urging anyone who might have information relating to her whereabouts or who may have seen her on the night of 6 July, on in the early hours of 7 July.

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.’

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

Alternatively, contact the Missing People charity in confidence on 116 000.
