Detectives are appealing for information after a young woman went missing after leaving her north west London home nine days ago

They say they are “increasingly concerned for the welfare” of missing Agnes Akom, 20, who was last seen in Cricklewood.

Agnes, also known as Dora, is a Hungarian national who has been living in the UK for five years.

She is believed to have left her home address in the Cricklewood Broadway area on the morning of Sunday, 9 May. She was reported missing on Tuesday, 11 May.

Ms Akom is known to frequent the Cricklewood and Perivale areas of London.

She is described as approximately 5ft 5ins tall, with blonde-hair, and is believed to have been wearing a distinctive white faux-fur coat, blue ripped jeans and light pink trainers.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, leading the investigation from the Met’s North West Command Unit, said: “We are increasingly concerned for the safety of Agnes who has now been missing for over nine days, during which time she not been in contact with any of her family or friends, nor has she been on social media, which is completely out of character.

“Our officers are working around the clock in the effort to locate Agnes, utilising all investigative opportunities and following every lead possible.

“We are asking for the public’s help to find Agnes. If you have any information, or may have seen her, please contact police.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting 21MIS013067. The incident room can also be contacted direct on 02083580100.
