Police have issued an urgent appeal for a young musician who went missing after visiting a Central London nightclub on Thursday evening.

Harvey Parker, 20, has not been seen since the early hours of Friday following a visit to Heaven nightclub in Charing Cross.

They had previously attended a Lil Simz concert in Brixton Academy before visiting the venue.

Their phone has been unresponsive since Friday.

The University of York student’s mother Amanda Parker has urged anyone with information to come forward.

She told the Metro: “Just before we went to bed Harvey came back and was really upbeat and very positive about the concert and had a good time.”

When Harvey failed to return home on Friday morning, she initially thought Harvey was at work at the Theatre Royal Stratford East.

However, she became increasingly worried and called the police after failing to get hold of Harvey by the evening.

She added: “We alerted the police, we went down to Heaven to see if anyone knew or heard anything to really get the ball rolling.

“We’ve gone to hospitals with his pictures, we’ve phoned every big A&E in London, I’m just beyond words to be honest, I really am.”

She described Harvey as a “phenomenal musician” who is able to play the flute, piano and organ.

In a social media post shared by close friends and family, Harvey is described as 5ft 8 height and mixed race with a slim build and short black hair.

In a tweet, Lambeth MPS said: “We are currently very concerned about the welfare of Harvey PARKER who was last seen on the 16th December 2021 at Heaven Nightclub at Charing Cross.

“If you have any information which may help us find Harvey, please contact us and quote Ref 21MIS039522.”

Detective Sergeant Dick Nation, from the Area South Safeguarding Unit, said. “We have not been able to speak to Harvey on his phone and we are not aware of any reason why he should not be in contact with his family.

“Both his family and police are extremely worried by his disappearance and we are asking for anyone who may have seen Harvey after he left the club, or has any other information, to call police immediately.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC. Please quote CAD 3134/18DEC21.
