Detectives are appealing for the public’s help to locate a pregnant woman who is missing in London and may be sleeping rough.

Obdulia Gracia Medina, 39, was reported missing to Surrey Police by hospital staff on Sunday, 14 April.

Obdulia was heavily pregnant and it is possible that her baby might now have been born.

The investigation was transferred to the Met on 1 May due to Obdulia’s links to London.

Following extensive enquiries, officers have established that Obdulia was at a venue in Cosway Street NW1 on the evening of Friday, 10 May.

The last sighting of her is from later that night as she walked northbound along Edgware Road at around 21:13hrs.

Officers have released CCTV images of her at both locations.

Detective Inspector Simon Beechey, one of the officers responsible for policing Westminster, said: “Obdulia has been missing for almost a month. In that time we have been working around the clock to find her and have carried out many enquiries.

“I am now further appealing to the public to assist us with enquiries to help find Obdulia, who we know was heavily pregnant or might now even have given birth.

“Obdulia is originally from Surrey but is recently believed to have been frequenting the Paddington and Marylebone areas. We believe she may be sleeping rough and we are seriously concerned for her welfare.

“I am also appealing directly to Obdulia. The health of you and your baby, whether you have now given birth or the child is unborn, is vitally important. Please seek medical help or call 999 immediately.”

If you have seen her or know where she may be then it is important that you come forward to police by calling 101, ref 01/290774/24 or for any immediate sightings dial 999.
