The urgent search for missing Sarah Everard has entered its fifth day after police hunted through parkland and London ponds over the weekend.

Family members have also made an emotional plea to the public, with her uncle asking if someone has her against her will to "let her come home", as the search continues.

Images of Sarah, 33, can be seen along the Clapham road which is where she was last seen before she disappeared.

Sarah spent the evening with friends on March 3 and left the house using the rear gate along Leathwaite Road at approximately 9pm.

She was last sighted on CCTV at around 9.30pm, Metropolitan Police have said, writes MyLondon.

She was walking alone on the A205 Poynders Road, from the junction with Cavendish Road, towards the direction of Tulse Hill.

Police and search teams have scoured Clapham Ponds and surrounding parkland over the weekend, but there has been no trace of Sarah so far.

Missing posters were heavily visible in Poynders Road this morning, (Monday, March 8), stuck to lamp posts and road signs as police continue their urgent search for the 33-year-old.

The Met Police said they are not currently operating under the assumption that anything 'untoward' has happened to her.

Sarah's uncle has pleaded with the public to come forward if they have any information that could help the search.

He also told The Sun: “If someone is holding her against her will I would plead with them just to be human and to let her come home, to let her talk to us, give us a ring or text to let us know she is OK.

“These are desperate times for the family. We know the police are doing everything they can but it’s the not knowing what has happened after four days is agonising”.
