The disappearance of a woman who has not been heard from since Wednesday night is causing "increasing concern", police have said.

Sarah Everard, 33, vanished as she walked home to Brixton, south London, from the Clapham Junction area.

Ms Everard spoke to her partner en route but has not been heard from since that point, friend Rose Woollard said.

She said her phone signal was picked up last near Clarence Avenue, between her home and where she left another friend.

'Extremely uncharacteristic'

Friends, who last heard from the 33-year-old at about 21:30 GMT on the day she went missing, were unable to contact Ms Everard on Thursday and notified the police.

She is 5ft 4in (162cm), has a slim build and blonde hair, and was wearing a green coat, dark trousers and trainers, her best friend Ms Woollard said.

The teacher described the 33-year-old as "beautiful, thoughtful and incredibly kind".

She said: "Sarah and I met many years ago whilst studying together at Durham University. She has always been an exceptional friend, dropping everything to be there to support her friends, whenever they need her.

"It was only recently that she was telling me the good news about her new role as a senior marketing account manager, which she was excited to start.

"It is extremely uncharacteristic of her to have gone missing, which is why we are all deeply concerned something has happened to her."
