Officers investigating the disappearance of a woman in south London have released a CCTV image of her from the night she was last seen.

Sarah Everard had been at a friend's house in Clapham on Wednesday evening. At approximately 9pm, she left the property in Leathwaite Road through a back gate onto the A205 South Circular and began walking to her home address in Brixton.

The 33-year-old is thought to have walked across Clapham Common and was expected to arrive home approximately 50 minutes later. It is unclear if Ms Everard returned to her home address. She has not been seen or heard from since.

The CCTV image of Ms Everard released by the police was captured in Sainsbury's on Wednesday. She visited the store to buy a bottle of wine before going to her friend's house.

Ms Everard's phone signal was last picked up near Clarence Avenue, in Clapham, where she left another friend.

In a statement, Ms Everard's family said: "With every day that goes by we are getting more worried about Sarah.

"She is always in regular contact with us and with her friends and it is totally out of character for her to disappear like this.

"We are desperate for news and if anyone knows anything about what has happened to her, we would urge you to please come forward and speak to the police."
