Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder by detectives investigating the disappearance of a nursing student nearly a month ago.

Owami Davies of Grays, Essex, left her family home on 4 July and was last seen at midnight in Derby Road, West Croydon, on 7 July.

Her family have not heard from her and she has not attended work, the Metropolitan Police said.

Two men were arrested yesterday on suspicion of murder in the Croydon area and remain in custody at a south London police station.

Police say case remains a missing person investigation

Detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command are now leading the investigation. Police said it remains a missing person investigation.

In an earlier statement detective constable Marie Spear from the south London missing persons unit said: ‘Owami was in a vulnerable state when she was last seen and we need the public’s help in piecing together her movements on the night she went missing.

‘I would urge anyone who has seen her, or knows where she is, to contact police immediately.’

Anyone with information about Ms Davies' whereabouts is asked to call the police on 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting reference 22MIS025307, or to contact the Missing People charity in confidence on 116 000.
