Two arrested for murder after nurse went missing from her home in Chafford Hundred

TWO men have been arrested on suspicion of murder as detectives continue to search for a student nurse who vanished nearly a month ago.

There are fears for Owami Davies, 24, who left her family home in Grays on July 4.

She was last seen in ‘a vulnerable state’ on Derby Road, West Croydon, on Thursday, July 7.

The two men, aged 23 and 27, were detained in connection with the case in the Croydon area on Monday. They remain in custody in a south London police station.

The Metropolitan Police said today the case remains a missing person investigation.

Anyone with information on where Owami could be is asked to get in contact with officers.

Detective Constable Marie Spear, from the Missing Persons Unit in south London, previously said: ‘Owami’s family have not heard from her for more than three weeks and she has not turned up to work.

‘We are currently treating this as a missing person investigation. Owami was in a vulnerable state when she was last seen and we need the public’s help in piecing together her movements on the night she went missing.

‘I would urge anyone who has seen her, or knows where she is, to contact police immediately. 

‘I’d also ask people in the West Croydon area to check their sheds and outbuildings and report anything suspicious or out of the ordinary.’

Detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command are now leading enquiries as they ‘have the resources and expertise required for a complex investigation’.
