    Missing Woman in London


    0 Not allowed!
    Sarah Everard. I pray they find her safe.

    I'm sure this has made the national news but very local to me, actually a bit too close to home. Saw the search and rescue guys combing the area at the weekend.

    Badly reported in the media as "went missing walking home between Clapham and Brixton", when it was actually "between the commons" in Wandsworth (near Clapham Junction) to Tulse Hill.

    This afternoon, the investigation shifted gear somewhat. They cordoned off some roads near Clapham South and tonight they have arrested a serving Met Police Officer in Kent and a woman with "assisting an offender".

    Didn't expect that.

      Though I never met Sarah, as our times didn’t quite overlap, we both worked at the same design agency, so I do know loads of people who know her and are feeling this really badly. Hope she’s found, but it’s not looking good.

      i hope she is found safely as well.

      but what i don't understand is why she is getting such extensive coverage, who is she really or who is she connected to? people go missing all.the.time and we barey hear a peep.

      Outside of those involved in criminal activity , do they ?

      Young proffessional people that go missing must be rare.

      Reminds me a it of the Claudia Lawerence case , wasnt she also from York ?

      Be a miracle if found alive given the timescales

      Female + white + blonde missing persons tend to get significantly more press coverage.

      not sure what 'professional' has to do with it, but fair enough. female + white + blonde is probably the ticket.

      there are just over 5,000 long term missing (gone for over a year) in england right now. i can name two or three off the top of my head, the rest we never heard of. this woman was barely missing a day and she was all over everywhere.

      Jesus Christ! This is someone's daughter. How vulnerable must she be out there? I hope and pray that she is found safe and well, but I'm not remotely optimistic.

      I lived overlooking the junction of Cavendish and Poynders Road where she was last seen for 2 years, up until a couple of months ago. Unsettling as never felt remotely unsafe round there. It’s a well lit and busy area.
