Police continue to search for Sarah Everard, in London

LONDON (Reuters) - A serving British police officer detained over the disappearance of a 33-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder, police said on Wednesday.

The man, who is in his 40s, was arrested on Tuesday evening on suspicion of kidnap and was on Wednesday further arrested on suspicion of murder and a separate allegation of indecent exposure.

Sarah Everard was last seen a week ago when she walked home from a friend's house in south London.
