    This is incredibly scary and worrying. A 33 year old lady in London has vanished without a trace. She was walking from Clapham Common area to her home in Brixton, around 9pm last week. Hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

    Gosh I pray for a miracle & she’s found safe and well .

    If anyone lives in the area please keep a look out or think if you may have noticed something.

    It doesnt look good. And the fact they have arrested a serving officer from the Met. Beggars belief.

    I just read too about the Met officer and also a woman (on suspicion of assisting an offender). But Clapham Common to Brixton is quite a walk - I wouldn't attempt it in daylight, tho' I don't believe it was terribly late. Awful story. Last I read she had not been found, though a white bobble hat like hers was found in some bushes.

    Apparently he is a 48-year-old,married, father of two (Wayne Couzens) and a diplomatic protection officer. They are digging up his garden and have taken his car for examination. Of course, he may be cleared, but very odd for the police to treat one of their own like this for no reason. I don't think things are looking good for this poor girl.

    I've just been reading about this story, what's scary is it could happen to anyone at any time. Makes you think twice about venturing out doesn't it.

    I hope she's found soon.

    When I was younger I remember being taught by my parents how to walk on the streets in such a way that I don’t cause anxiety to others eg women walking alone in the evening. Don’t wear soft soles (so you are heard), cross the road and walk in front of others so they can see you from a safe distance.

    What I read, is he likely used his warrant card and some pretext, maybe lockdown to lure her closer to the car. With his job he is allowed to carry a weapon.
    It wasn't daylight when his actions may have been more visible to others and more people outside.

    I tend to cross streets, fall behind etc if I feel uncomfortable.
    If I hear footsteps and it is night and not many people out, I tend to move off side or fall back to see who is behind me. Sometimes it is another female but it is better to know who is behind you especially at night. If a male, I move so they pass and I am not in front.
    Even in daylight you need to be careful. I recall a school girl a few years ago in London who did cross the road when she thought she was being followed but the guy grabbed her and pulled her off the street and attacked her.

    Best you can do is be aware and alert but it does not always help.

    Incredibly sad news.

    I wonder how they made the jump from a disappearance in London to an arrest and search in Kent.

    There must be things they know that haven't been publicised.

    Poor girl if it's her :(

    The man they think abducted her lives in or is originally from that area in Kent. It was not fully clear to me.
    His hired car was caught on a dash cam of another car in the area Sarah was believed abducted in London.

    Yes, it can. I was nearly abducted a couple of years ago on a sunny afternoon on my way back from the doctors. I don't leave the house alone anymore, but if I did I'd use one of the GPS tracking apps you can get that show others you give the link to your location.
