The family of a mother-of-two who has been missing for seven months has pleaded for help to find her.

Mary Jane Mustafa, 38, has not been seen by her family since Sunday, May 6, after she popped out to the shops.

In the last few days the family received reported sightings of Mary Jane in Devons Road, Bromley by Bow, and around All Saints DLR station in Poplar.

Cousin Ayse Hussein said: “Someone must know where she is. We urge anyone who knows where she is to please come forward.

“It’s getting too much now. It’s really affecting the family.”

A former teacher, Mary Jane was unemployed at the time and had been staying at her mother’s house in Canning Town with her two children, aged 11 and 19, before she went missing.

Mary Jane has a front tooth missing and a tattoo of flowers and leaves down her back.
