Previously unreleased CCTV footage showing 15-year-old Veronica Sbircea walking down Brighton Terrace, holding hands with an individual, has been released by detectives as the search to locate her continues.
The CCTV footage shows Veronica at around 5.15pm on Thursday, 28 July, in Brighton Terrace, Brixton, South London.
Detective Inspector Stuart Hitchon, one of a team of detectives working to locate her, said: “We’ve released some additional CCTV footage in the hope that it may trigger someone’s memory of seeing her. Or that Veronica herself may see it and make contact with us.
“It has been over a month since any sightings of her or any social media contact by her, which is very concerning. We desperately need to establish her whereabouts and ensure she is safe.”
Despite efforts by officers to trace the missing 15-year-old teenager, including work at the Notting Hill Carnival, she was not seen at the event over bank holiday weekend.
DI Hitchon, said: “We believed there was a small chance Veronica might attend the carnival. However despite appealing to the public, no new leads have come in to the force.
“We are still continuing our efforts to trace Veronica and would appeal to anyone who know anything to call us on 101.”
Veronica sometimes goes by the name of Rachel, is white, 5ft, with long straight black hair and brown eyes.
Veronica left her home in Kettering on the evening of Thursday 21 July, but is now believed to be in the South London area. She is originally from London, and attended Kingsmead School in Southbury Road, Enfield.
