CCTV footage seen by the Metropolitan Police has confirmed the last known sighting of Sarah Everard, who disappeared in South London on Wednesday (March 3).

Authorities in the capital are searching and using public appeals to locate Sarah, who went missing in between Clapham and Brixton after 9.30pm as the Wandsworth Times reported previously.

On Sunday afternoon (March 7), the Met Police issued an updated statement confirming the last known sighting of Sarah.

A spokesperson for Scotland Yard said:

"Detectives investigating the disappearance of Sarah Everard have released new information about where she was last seen.

"33-year-old Sarah was spotted on CCTV at approximately 21:30hrs on Wednesday, 3 March.

"She was walking alone on the A205 Poynders Road, from the junction with Cavendish Road, in the direction of Tulse Hill.

"Sarah had been at a friend's house in Clapham that evening. At approximately 21:00hrs, 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.

"She is thought to have walked across Clapham Common and was expected to arrive home approximately 50 minutes later. It is unclear if she returned to her home address. She has not been seen or heard from since."

In their search for Sarah, who is a Brixton resident, the Met are currently reviewing more CCTV footage from the area on the night she went missing and conducting "house-to-house" inquiries with residents who live near to where she was last seen.

Speaking on Sunday, Detective Chief Inspector Katherine Goodwin said there was currently no evidence that anything "untoward" had happened to Sarah and that police efforts were focused on bringing her home safe.

"I would like to stress that there is no information at this stage to suggest anything untoward may have happened to Sarah," she said.

"The focus remains on returning her home to her family safe and well and that is our number one priority.

"I would like to thank Sarah's family and friends, the local community and members of the public for their help to raise awareness of this appeal and for coming forward with information.

"I would urge anybody who has information or noticed any suspicious activity in the area to contact us if you haven't already," DCI Goodwin added.

Meanwhile, Sarah's family issued a statement describing their increasing concern for her.

"With every day that goes by we are getting more worried about Sarah," the family statement read.

"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 long to see her and want nothing more than for her to be found safe and well.

"We are so grateful to the police and all our friends for all they are doing.

"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.
