Petra Srncova: Missing woman from south London last seen on bus after withdrawing cash, police say

Police searching for a 32-year-old missing woman say she was last seen on a bus after withdrawing cash.

Petra Srncova, a 32-year-old woman from south London, has been missing for more than a week, and police have said they are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare.

Her family, in her native Czech Republic, have not heard from her and are said to be “desperately worried about her”.

Police are asking anyone who has seen her or has information about her whereabouts to contact them immediately.

Ms Srncova, who lives in the Camberwell area, had been working a shift as a senior nurse assistant at Evelina London Children’s Hospital, on the evening of Sunday 28 November.

Police said she was last seen on a bus home at about 8.22pm, after withdrawing money from a cashpoint in the Elephant and Castle area.

She is thought to have been wearing a green coat and carrying a red backpack.

On Saturday, Harriet Harman, MP for Camberwell and Peckham, called for the public’s help in the search for Ms Srncova.

Holding up a poster of the missing woman, Ms Harman says she is “very worried” about the disappearance.

Ms Harman said: “Petra is missing and we want people to help find her. She’s been missing quite a few days and she is only 32.

“Her parents are desperately worried about her and we have a responsibility to help find her. She was away from her country and her family here working in our National Health Service.”

Ms Srncova was reported missing on Friday 3 December by a work colleague who became concerned.

The Metropolitan Police said a man arrested in connection with her disappearance has been released on bail pending further inquiries.

Forensics officers were seen at a flat in south London. Sky News understands that flat is where Petra lives.

Detective Superintendent Clair Kelland, from the Central South Command Unit, said: “Petra’s disappearance is out of character and, of course, her family and friends are very worried.

“We are also growing increasingly concerned for Petra’s welfare and have officers working hard to try and find her.

“If you have any information whatsoever, please get in touch and help us with our inquiries.”

Police have said anyone with information is urged to call 101 or tweet MetCC referencing 21MIS037753.
