She is 33 years old.
When did she go missing?
On Wednesday night, Sarah left a friend’s house in Leathwaite Road in Clapham about 9pm.
She headed through a back gate onto the A205 South Circular before she is believed to have walked across Clapham Common.
The marketing manager had spoken to her partner on the phone for about 15 minutes, and has not been heard from since that point, according to her friend Rose Woollard.
Police say it is not clear if she made it back to her home in nearby Brixton.
Police also said she was last seen on CCTV at around 9.30pm on Poynder’s Road heading in the direction of Tulse Hill.
Specialist officers and volunteers from London Search and Rescue yesterday carried out searches in the area of Clapham Common and the walking route between Clapham and Brixton.
Detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, which deal with homicides and major crime for the force, have now taken over the investigation.
Clues to find Sarah
The Met said Sarah’s disappearance is still being treated as a missing person’s case.
Detective Chief Inspector Katherine Goodwin said: “I would like to stress that there is no information at this stage to suggest anything untoward may have happened to Sarah.
“The focus remains on returning her home to her family safe and well and that is our number one priority.
“I would like to thank Sarah’s family and friends, the local community and members of the public for their help to raise awareness of this appeal and for coming forward with information.
“I would urge anybody who has information or noticed any suspicious activity in the area to contact us if you haven’t already. ”
What have Sarah’s family said?
On Saturday her family released a desperate appeal for information as cops continue to hunt for Sarah – including in bodies of water.
Her family said: “With every day that goes by we are getting more worried about Sarah.
“She is always in regular contact with us and with her friends and it is totally out of character for her to disappear like this.
“We long to see her and want nothing more than for her to be found safe and well.
“We are so grateful to the police and all our friends for all they are doing.
Sarah Everard Search Operation
Teams were photographed searching Clapham Common this morning where Sarah Everard is thought to have been walking before she disappeared.
The 33-year-old was last seen walking between Clapham Junction and Brixton at 9pm on Wednesday.
Her family, who are from York, have travelled down to London as the search continues and have said they are growing more worried with every day she has not been found.
Aunt Jane Everard, of Bolton, Lancs, told The Sun: ‘We’re devastated. It is so out of character for her.
‘She has a very big circle of friends from Durham, where she was at university and down in London. It has been a real shock. We are all so worried.’
Sarah left her friend’s house in Leathwaite Road, Clapham, through a back gate on to the A205 South Circular and began walking to her home address in Brixton, the force said.
It is thought she walked across Clapham Common and was expected to arrive home around 50 minutes later. It is not clear if she did return home, the Met said.
Ms Everard 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.
Yesterday, London Metropolitan Police released a fresh appeal to find her and told MailOnline it was searching the ponds in Clapham Common for her yesterday afternoon.
They were joined by London Search and Rescue volunteers who said they had been searching the park since Friday night.
In a statement, Ms Everard’s family said: ‘With every day that goes by we are getting more worried about Sarah.
‘She is always in regular contact with us and with her friends and it is totally out of character for her to disappear like this.
‘We long to see her and want nothing more than for her to be found safe and well.
‘We are so grateful to the police and all our friends for all they are doing.
‘We are desperate for news and if anyone knows anything about what has happened to her, we would urge you to please come forward and speak to the police. No piece of information is too insignificant.’
Reports suggest Sarah spoke with her partner on the phone on her way home to Brixton on Wednesday evening and talked for about 15 minutes about how their day had been and discussed plans to see each other the following day.
Friends have said they believe something happened to her after the call ended at 21.28.
The London rescue team has said that they’ve found ‘nothing significant’ so far in their search for missing woman, Sarah Everard.
A combination of volunteers and the police have ramped up the search for the woman, who went missing in the Clapham area on Wednesday night.
This morning, a member of the rescue team confirmed that ‘nothing significant’ has been found in the search.
Sarah’s Uncle Doug told the Sun she had moved to London about 12 years ago and that she also had a sister and brother who also lived in London.
He added: ‘She is lovely, a really lovely young lady, very sensible.
‘The police are keeping my brother informed and we are on the end of a phone.
‘It is a really tough time. They are devastated and they are desperate to find out anything they can.
‘None of us really know anything.
‘They have always been a very very close family. Sarah, her parents and her sister and brother, they are all in touch on a regular basis.
Sarah’s best friend Rose, a teacher, told the Brixton Blog: ‘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.
‘She is a beautiful, thoughtful and incredibly kind friend. It is extremely uncharacteristic of her to have gone missing, which is why we are all deeply concerned something has happened to her.’
Detective Chief Inspector Ian Kenward, from the Central South Public Protection Team, said: ‘Sarah’s disappearance is completely out of character and understandably her family and friends are incredibly worried.
‘We are also growing increasingly concerned for her welfare and have officers working round the clock to try and find her.
‘I would ask anybody who was in the Clapham Common area on Wednesday night to think about whether you saw Sarah or any suspicious activity around the time of her disappearance.’
Her family and friends released a plea for Ms Everard’s return yesterday, saying: ‘Sarah, we are here for whenever you are ready.’
Ms Everard, from Lambeth, is 5ft 4 with blonde hair and was carrying a transparent case with green in-ear Bluetooth headphones.
Her loved ones added: ‘We can listen, talk you through what help you need, pass a message for you and help you to be safe.’
Specialist officers and volunteers from London Search and Rescue are carrying out searches in the area of Clapham Common and the walking route between Clapham and Brixton.

Wayne Couzens is a SERVING Met Police officer who has been arrested on suspicion of murder and kidnap in the hunt for missing Sarah Everard.

Met Police officer Wayne Couzens
Wayne Couzens, a 48-year-old father-of-two, is a Met Police armed diplomatic protection officer stationed in Westminster and was arrested at his home in Kent last night.
His work saw him provide protection at major public events attended by senior members of the Royal Family.
Wayne Couzens Arrest Report
Met Police this afternoon confirmed a serving officer was arrested last night on suspicion of kidnap and was further arrested on suspicion of murder and a separate allegation of indecent exposure.
The Met said a woman had also been arrested at the same location on suspicion of assisting an offender and also remains in custody at a London police station.
How Did he was Arrested?
The arrested officer, who was initially held on suspicion of kidnap, is also being questioned about a separate allegation of indecent exposure.
He was responsible for uniformed patrolling of diplomatic premises – including Downing Street, the Palace of Westminster, as well as foreign embassies in London.
Since last Wednesday, officers have visited over 750 homes in the Clapham area and have received more than 120 phone calls from the public, the Met said.
Marketing executive Ms Everard vanished on 3 March and was last captured on a doorbell camera walking alone along the A205 Poynders Road towards Tulse Hill at around 21:30 GMT.
Ms Everard’s family said it was out of character for her to disappear.
She is thought to have walked through Clapham Common towards her house in Brixton – a journey which should have taken about 50 minutes.
Speaking after the arrest on Tuesday Assistant Commissioner Nick Ephgrave said: “The fact that the man who has been arrested is a serving Metropolitan Police officer is both shocking and deeply disturbing.”
This morning Mr Ephgrave described the arrest of a serving Met Police officer as both shocking and disturbing.
That officer has now been further arrested on suspicion of murder.
It’s unusual for such a senior officer to give a statement at this stage of an investigation and perhaps reflects the horror felt within the force – a profession where colleagues often describe themselves as family.
We have now learnt the arrested officer is in his 40s and works in the Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command where his primary role was to patrol diplomatic premises.
Understandably, Sarah’s disappearance has made some people in and around Clapham nervous for their own safety.
Social media users have said the arrest of a police officer has heightened anxiety.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan said: “All women and girls should be able to feel safe on the streets of London at all times.
“I know how shocked and worried Londoners are by Sarah’s disappearance and the developments in the case.”
