The Metropolitan police said two men, 23 and 27, were arrested in the Croydon area on suspicion of murder on Monday. They remain in custody at a south London police station.
The Met’s missing persons unit launched an investigation last month after Davies’ disappearance, and appealed for information about her whereabouts.
Announcing the arrests on Monday, the force said: “Detectives from the Met’s specialist crime command are now leading enquiries to locate 24-year-old Owami Davies because they have the resources and expertise required for a complex investigation. This remains a missing persons investigation.”
Anyone with information about Davies’ whereabouts is asked to call the police on 101, tweet @MetCC quoting reference 22MIS025307, or contact the charity Missing People on 116 000.
