Detectives investigating the disappearance of Owami Davies have no new leads after CCTV of her was uncovered last week.

The student nurse, 24, left her family home in Grays, Essex, six weeks ago on 4 July.

She was last seen three days later walking north on London Road, Croydon away from West Croydon.

CCTV enquiries carried out by the Met Police caught the last known image of her at around 12.30pm wearing a dark jacket , red t-shirt, light grey joggers, slider type shoes and carrying a white handbag over her shoulder.

The image of Owami, who was studying at King's College London, is the last known sighting of her.

Five people have been arrested during the course of the investigation for offences including suspected murder and kidnap.

Owami's desperate family and friends issued another appeal on Monday for help in finding her.

They tweeted: "We try again today, Owami is still missing. No news/sighting of her since.

"Where is she? Why are the cameras not picking her movements? Who took her ? What condition is she in? Where does she sleep? Eat? Dress?

"We have a lot of questions we don’t have answers to. Help us."

Labour MP Dawn Butler also issued a call for people to help, saying: "Please everyone in the area check your video doorbells and CCTVs.

"What has happened to Owami Davies?"
