Mother makes ‘desperate’ public plea to help find missing Owami Davies – as police release CCTV images | UK News
The mother of a missing student nurse has made an emotional plea for information, as the police release CCTV images.
Owami Davies, 24, has been missing since 4 July after she left her family home in Grays, Essex.
She was last seen on Derby Road in West Croydon, South London on 7 July and almost a month after her disappearance, her mother, Nicol Davies, said “it is obvious that someone out there has seen something”.
“I am begging, I am asking for the public’s help, from the people, to say if you know, if you have heard or seen her, or she passed you, please speak up,” she said.
“All we really want is to find her, all we really need is for her to come home or to know her whereabouts.
“I sit here as a desperate mother at the mercy of anyone that knows or heard something to help me find my baby, that’s all I’m asking, just help to find her.
“Or her, if she’s somewhere and hears this, to please come home. We miss her so much, her brothers and myself miss her, need her.
“We are not complete, we just want her to come home and, again, if she is listening she should know she’s not in trouble.”
Ms Davies, who is a mother of three, added that her daughter was “really happy” and had about two months left of her nursing course, with a job secured at Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital.
She added that Ms Davies worked in A&E during the pandemic and that the family had planned to go to Spain and Disneyland Paris on holiday.
She said: “We had so many things on our calendar that we still needed to do.”
She added: “She’s a lovely person. Owami’s caring, she likes to help. She doesn’t hold grudges. She loves her brothers, she dotes on her brothers. She loves me. As much as we love her.”
The Metropolitan Police has released new images of the night Ms Davies was last seen in a shop and CCTV of her in Derby Road.
Investigators are looking to speak to the driver of a white van, that was parked on the road.
Ms Davies was with a man and crossed the road just as the van pulled out, police said, adding the driver would have had a “good opportunity” to see both of them.
The Met Police said this remains a missing person enquiry.
A 32-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder at an address in South Croydon remains in custody and two other men, aged 27 and 23, were arrested in the Croydon area for the same offence.
