- Justin Henry, 34, was reported missing to police on Monday October 16
- Police have arrested one person while investigating his whereabouts
Police are searching for a missing South London man who vanished nearly a week ago after going to a McDonald’s drive-thru.
Justin Henry, 34, was reported missing to police on Monday October 16 and was last seen in person on the evening of Sunday October 15 at the address of his partner in Brixton.
He was picked up on CCTV later that night at around 9:50pm buying food at a McDonald’s drive-thru restaurant in London Road, Croydon.
Justin has links to the Forest Hill area of Lewisham and his lack of contact with his friends and family is said to be out of character for him.
Police have arrested one person in connection with a missing person investigation into the 34-year-old’s whereabouts. They have been bailed pending further enquiries to a date in January 2024.

The Met believe Justin drove from the McDonald’s restaurant to a nearby location in Croydon where his vehicle, a silver Mercedes E Class, remained for approximately two and a half hours.
The Mercedes was later found in Kingswood Drive, Dulwich. It is unclear who was driving the vehicle when it arrived at Kingswood Drive due to indistinct CCTV image of the driver, but Justin’s family state that it is not him.
The police are actively trying to establish Justin’s movements, in particular late on Sunday October 15, and in the early hours of Monday October 16.
DCI Matt Coop of the Met’s South East CID said: ‘Based on the available evidence this remains a missing person enquiry, however my concern that Justin has come to harm is, sadly, increasing with every day.
‘The investigation team continue to be assisted by officers from Specialist Crime, including forensic specialists. Justin’s family are being supported by specially trained officers.
‘We are now appealing to the public for their assistance. I need to hear from anyone who may have seen Justin over the past week.
‘We are particularly interested in any information about Justin’s movements after leaving McDonald’s last Sunday night (15 October), and I also want to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious or heard a disturbance.
‘If you have any information, no matter how small it may seem, please call police or to remain anonymous contact the independent charity Crimestoppers.’
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or post @MetCC quoting reference CAD 5224/21102023. To provide information anonymously to Crimestoppers please call 0800 555 111 or visit the Crimestoppers website.
