Appeal for missing student Owami Davies

Police appeal for missing student Owami Davies

Owami Davies

We are deeply concerned about the disappearance of King’s Nursing student Owami Davies.

Owami is a valued member of the King’s community and we continue to hope for her swift and safe return. We are keeping Owami, her family, and her friends in our thoughts during this difficult time.

Owami was last seen around 12.30pm on Derby Road in West Croydon, south London, on 7 July. She was seen in a dark jacket, a red Adidas T-shirt, light grey jogging bottoms, slider type shoes and carrying a white handbag over her shoulder. Police are appealing for information about her disappearance.

New CCTV images show Owami, 24, walking north on London Road, Croydon, away from West Croydon.

Anyone with information should call the incident room on 020 8721 4622. Information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at
