Officers searching for a missing woman in south London have put up a cordon outside a block of flats near to where she was last seen.

Sarah Everard was last spotted by a doorbell camera on the A205 Poynders Road in Clapham at about 21:30 GMT on Wednesday.

The cordon extends along Poynders Road from Rodenhurst Road to Cavendish Road.

Detectives have released fresh images of the 33-year-old as the search continues “at pace”.

As part of the ongoing investigation police are searching a variety of areas, the Met said.

“We have committed significant resources to this investigation, with assistance coming from across the Met,” she said.

“I want to remain clear that at this time we have no information to suggest that Sarah has come to any harm and we retain an open mind as to the circumstances.

“We share the wish of her family and friends to have her back safely with her loved ones.”

Friends and relatives have issued appeals on social media to help find the marketing manager who vanished on her walk home to Brixton after visiting a friend’s flat in Leathwaite Road, Clapham Junction.

Her family have said it is out of character for her to disappear.

Women living in the area near to where she vanished told reporters they had been warned by police to be extra vigilant.

Scotland Yard said no official advice was being given to local residents, but it would remind them of “normal personal safety advice”.

Investigators are not currently linking the disappearance to reports of women being followed in surrounding areas.

Ms Everard, who is originally from York and attended Durham University, was last seen wearing a green rain jacket, navy blue trousers with a white diamond pattern, and turquoise and orange trainers. She is thought to have been wearing green earphones and a white beanie hat.

Detectives have urged people to check any dashcam or doorbell cameras for sightings of her, particularly along these roads:

  • The A205 South Circular around Clapham Common
  • Cavendish Road
  • New Park Road
  • Brixton Hill
  • Brixton Water Lane
