POLICE are appealing for help to trace a woman who has been missing for more than three weeks.

Musonda Chimfwende, of Roach Road, Bow, was last seen by her family on December last year.

She stayed with friends until December 12 but cops say the 20-year-old intended to return home after that.

Police inquiries suggest Musonda took a Route 488 bus from Clapton to Bromley-by-Bow on December 12 and it is believed she was near her home around 9.10pm.

But the computing student did not return home and officers say it is totally out of character for Musonda to go missing.

Musonda is black, 5ft 2ins tall, of slight build with dark brown eyes and shoulder length black hair. When last seen she was wearing a grey knee length coat and black leather boots.

Det Insp Stewart Garrick of Tower Hamlets CID said: "It is now three weeks since Musonda disappeared.

"This is wholly out of character and we are naturally growing increasingly concerned for her safety.

"It is essential that anyone who may have seen her recently, or has information on her possible whereabouts, comes forward.

"Similarly we also ask Musonda herself to contact police or her family if she is able."

Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact Limehouse police station on 020 7275 4589, the missing persons office on 0500 700 700 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
