Police have released new CCTV images of missing Harvey Parker saying they are “increasingly concerned” for the 20-year-old’s welfare as the search enters its fifth day.

The young musician was last seen around 2.15am on Friday leaving Heaven nightclub in Charing Cross.

The University of York student had been to a Lil Simz concert at the Brixton Academy before visiting Heaven. Their phone has been unresponsive since Friday.

Police said on Tuesday that CCTV showed Harvey entering nearby Craven Street after leaving Heaven and walking south towards the Embankment.

Harvey’s mother Amanda Parker has urged anyone with information to get in touch.

She told the Metro newspaper on Monday: “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.”

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

Officers say there is no reason for Harvey not to be in contact with family as they also urged the public to help find the missing 20-year-old.

“To assist the public, we are releasing images of Harvey from the night he went missing,” said Detective Sergeant Dick Nation.

“We know they were last seen on CCTV on Craven Street, walking south towards Embankment. This is a terrible ordeal for Harvey’s family and friends and I would urge anyone who saw him or has any information to contact police immediately.”

The 20-year-old is described by friends and family as 5ft 8 height and mixed race with a slim build and short black hair.

The University of York, where Harvey is a second-year music student, also appealed for those with information to get in touch with police.

In a statement, the university said: “We’re very concerned that one of our students, Harvey Parker, is currently missing after a night out in London”.
