A statement from Tower Hamlet Police on Twitter on Saturday night said: “#Missing #TowerHamlets Police are concerned for 26 year old Penka Petkova who is missing from her home in E3.

“Please call police quoting CAD 8265/24Sept21 if you see her.”

Thankfully 75 per cent of those are located within 24 hours, rising to 85 per cent after 48 hours.

However, five per cent will be missing for longer than a week and as of March 2020 there were 5,300 “long-term missing individuals” in the UK – the term applied to people who have been missing for more than a year.
