She had been at a friend’s house when she left the property in Leathwaite Road around 9pm.

The last known sighting of the marketing executive was captured on a doorbell camera just after 9.30pm showing her walking alone toward Tulse Hill.

Her body was found in woodland near Ashford, Kent, a week later.

The news on Friday evening comes just hours after police confirmed that human remains found in a woodland area in Kent were those of the missing 33-year-old.
