Investigators searching for a student nurse who has been missing for nearly a month have arrested two people on suspicion of murder.
Owami Davies, 24, left her family home in Grays, Essex, on July 4 and was last seen in the Derby Road area of West Croydon just after midnight on July 7.
She was described as being in a “vulnerable condition” when she left home and her family have not heard from her since.
On August 1, police arrested two men, aged 27 and 23, on suspicion of murder and they are being questioned at a south London police station.
Scotland Yard said while the case was still being treated as a missing persons investigation, it was now being handled by homicide detectives.
A spokesman said: “Detectives with the Met’s Specialist Crime Command are now conducting an investigation to locate 24-year-old Owami Davies because they have the resources and expertise needed to conduct a complex investigation.”
Detective Constable Marie Spear, of the South London Missing Persons Unit, requested information on her whereabouts, saying: “Owami’s family has not heard from her for more than three weeks and she has not turned up for work.
“We are currently treating this as a missing persons investigation. Owami was in a vulnerable state when she was last seen and we need the public’s help to piece together her movements on the night of her disappearance.
“I would urge anyone who has seen her or knows where she is to contact the police immediately. I would also ask people in the West Croydon area to check their sheds and outbuildings and report anything suspicious or out of the ordinary.”
