Police in Haringey continue to investigate missing person Ambrose Ball and are releasing further information in the hope that new witnesses may come forward.


Ambrose (also known as Jay) Ball, 30, was last seen driving his silver coloured BMW from The Fox public house on Green Lanes, Palmers Green towards Tottenham on Saturday, 24 January.

At approximately 03:09hrs the BMW collided with the central reservation on Watermead Way at the junction with Sedge Road, N15. The car lost one of its front wheels and continued further down the road, coming to rest next to Tottenham Marshes.

Following the collision, it is believed that Ambrose got out of his car and has not been seen since.

Ambrose, from Tottenham, is described as black and around 5ft 9ins. He is stocky and has black cropped hair and a goatee beard and the word ‘Legend’ tattooed on his neck.

He was last seen wearing a blue Stone Island jacket with a hood (and a Stone Island badge on the arm), blue Armani jeans and white Ralph Lauren trainers with a blue logo and blue soles.

Police have spoken to witnesses since Ambrose’s disappearance and are keen to speak to three drivers believed to have stopped following the collision:

The driver of a seven ton truck who stopped at the scene and got out. He is described as a black man, aged about 40

The driver of a red Ford Fiesta who is described as a black man, of slim build and between 30 – 40 years old

The driver of a dark-coloured hatchback car who stopped at the scene and got out. He is described as being a light-skinned black man, about 5ft 8ins and aged 25-30 with a local accent. He had a female passenger with him who stayed in the car.

Finally police would like to speak to any rough sleepers who were in the area that may have seen or heard the crash.

Detective Inspector Sharon Freeman-Woods, of Haringey police, said: “I would particularly like to speak to these potential witnesses who may help piece together what happened to Ambrose after his car collided that night.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Haringey police on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
