Missing Owami Davies ‘may be riding trains looking dazed or confused’
Owami left her family home in Chafford Hundred, Grays, and was last seen in Derby Road, West Croydon on July 7. British Transport Police tweeted on Thursday: "We know Owami Davies, 24, regularly uses the rail and tube network to travel from Grays, Essex to the Croydon area. "Owami may still be regularly travelling by rail in a vulnerable state, appearing dazed or confused and possibly seeking to engage with other lone female travellers.
If you know where Owami is, ring the police." CCTV released last week showed her in a dark jacket, red Adidas T-shirt, light grey joggers at 12.30pm walking north on London Road away from West Croydon towards Norbury.
It came as police investigating her disappearance received new reports of someone matching her description in the south London area. Officers working on the investigation have retrieved some 50,000 hours of footage that will need to be trawled through.
