IT has been revealed that missing Thurrock student nurse Owami Davies was spoken to by police two days after she left her Chafford Hundred home - an issue that is to be investigated by Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) as the probe into her disappearance continues.

The Met Police says investigations have revealed its officers had contact with Ms Davies, 24, who is studying nursing at King's College London, on the day she was reported missing by her family.

She left her home in Grays, Essex, on 4 July and was last seen in Croydon on 7 July. The Met said its officers had spoken to her in Croydon on 6 July but did not know at the time she was a missing person.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has requested and received a referral about the matter and a spokseperson says: "We are currently assessing the available information to determine what further action may be required," they added.

Ms Davies's family reported her missing to Essex Police on 6 July and the force handed the investigation over to the Met on 23 July.

In a statement, the Met said officers were called to an address in Clarendon Road, Croydon, to concerns over the welfare of a woman on 6 July. Police attended and called the London Ambulance Service, but woman told them she did not want help and left.

Ms Davies had not yet been marked as a missing person on the police database at the time. The force said it only later established that the woman they had spoken to was Ms Davies as a result of their missing person investigation.

In the past week British Transport Police said that they believe Ms Davies may be 'dazed and confused' and still travelling around London by train.
