Petra Srncova: Missing Camberwell woman is a nurse at Evelina children’s hospital

Petra Srncova, the Camberwell woman who was reported missing earlier this month, works at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

Ms Srncova, 32, is a senior nurse assistant at the Waterloo children’s hospital, which is run by the same NHS trust that manages Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals.

Guy’s and St Thomas’ said in a statement: “We are extremely concerned about our valued colleague Petra who is missing. We want to encourage anyone who may have any information that could help to find her to contact the police.”

A man has been arrested in connection with her disappearance, but it is unclear if he has been charged with any crime.

The Czech woman was last seen at about 8.20pm on Sunday, November 28.

Ms Srncova is thought to have left the hospital at 7.45pm that Sunday, and police think she was wearing a green coat and carrying a red backpack at the time.

Officers believe she withdrew money from a cash machine, before getting on to a bus towards Elephant and Castle.

After that police think she changed to a new bus going towards her home in Camberwell, where she was last seen.

Officers were alerted to Ms Srncova’s disappearance by a worried colleague at the hospital last Friday (December 3).

Police have contacted her family in the Czech Republic, but they have also not heard from her.

Local MP Harriet Harman joined Southwark councillors Evelyn Akoto, Alice Macdonald and Dora Dixon-Fyle, as well as Southwark and Lambeth London Assembly member Marina Ahmad, in putting up posters of Ms Srncova on Saturday (December 11).

The Met’s Clair Kelland, from the Central South Command Unit, which covers Southwark and Lambeth, said police were increasingly concerned about Ms Srncova.

She appealed for any information that could help the police find the missing nurse.

The detective superintendent said: “We continue to grow increasingly worried about Petra and we are doing everything we can to try and find her.

“Her disappearance is out of character and, of course, her loved ones are extremely concerned and want to know where she is.

“Please think about if you’ve seen her, or maybe come into contact with her. If you have any information whatsoever, please get in touch and help us with our enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC referencing 21MIS037753.
