Fears grow for hospital worker, 32, who vanished two weeks ago as man arrested

Fears are growing for a missing hospital worker who vanished two weeks ago after a shift.

Petra Srncova, 32, was reported missing by a concerned colleague on December 3.

The senior nurse assistant lives in Camberwell, south London, and works at Evelina London Children’s Hospital, next to St Thomas’s Hospital in London Bridge.

She is believed to have left the hospital at 7.45pm on November 28, wearing a green coat and carrying a red backpack at the time.

It is believed that she withdrew money from a cashpoint, before getting onto a bus towards Elephant and Castle.

Family of missing nurse assistant ‘desperately worried’

She is then thought then to have changed to a new bus travelling towards her home address in Camberwell, where she was last seen at 8.22pm.

Police have contacted her family in her native Czech Republic and they have not heard from her.

Officers are now appealing for information for anyone who may know about the woman’s whereabouts.

The Met confirmed a man has been arrested in connection with Petra’s disappearance and taken into custody.

Detective Superintendent Clair Kelland, from the Central South Command Unit which covers the area that Petra lives in, said: “We continue to grow increasingly worried about Petra and we are doing everything we can to try and find her.

“Her disappearance is out of character and, of course, her loved ones are extremely concerned and want to know where she is.

“Please think about if you’ve seen her, or maybe come into contact with her.

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

The Evelina hospital said on Twitter: “We are extremely concerned about our valued colleague Petra who is missing.

“We want to encourage anyone who may have any information that could help to find her to contact the police.”
