How did the events take place?
On March 6, the alarm is raised for the disappearance of Ms Everard, also because it is not in his habits and his character not to feel family and friends for so long. Police released a closed-circuit image of Sarah and initially thought that she had crossed Clapham Common to his home in Brixton, which was supposed to last about 50 minutes.
March 7: Police released footage from a private camera showing Mrs Everard walking alone along A205 Poynders Road to Tulse Hill, south of Brixton. It’s unclear, of course, whether she got to her house or not.
March 8: Scotland Yard says it is open to assessing all the possibilities of Ms Everard’s disappearance. Specialized officers have been enlisted by the entire Metropolitan Police Force who claim to have received over 120 calls on the case and ask anyone with a dashcam or other relevant footage to come forward.
As of March 9, police use sniffer dogs to search gardens in the streets near the route planned for Mrs Everard’s home and the nearby Oaklands estate. In the meantime, they release new images of Mrs Everard in the coat she was wearing at the time of her disappearance.
Late in the evening of the same day, police announced that they had arrested a police officer at an address in Kent and that it may be related to the disappearance of Ms Everard.
Nick Ephgrave, the deputy commissioner, says that it is both disturbing and shocking that the man is a police officer on duty. The man is held in custody, along with the woman arrested because she is suspected of providing assistance to a delinquent.
