Joy Morgan: Man arrested over student missing since Boxing Day | UK News
A man has been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a student who was last seen on Boxing Day.
Joy Morgan, reported missing to police on 7 February, was last seen in Ilford, east London.
A 40-year-old man from London has now been arrested and released on bail, pending further enquiries.
Officers described the case as a “complex missing person investigation”.
The 21-year-old Hertfordshire University student, from Hatfield, is described as black, of slim build, 5ft 5in tall, with afro style hair that she often covers with a scarf.
She also wears glasses.
Her family issued an appeal saying: “We love you, we miss you. Wherever you are, text or call so that we know you are alright.
“It doesn’t matter what has happened, just come home.”
It was Ms Morgan’s 21st birthday on Tuesday.
She has links across London, including Battersea and Cricklewood, and Bedfordshire.
Welwyn Hatfield Chief Inspector Tannis Perks said: “This is a complex missing person investigation and we are working hard to establish the circumstances surrounding Joy’s disappearance.
“Understandably her family are extremely worried about her and are desperate to know that she is okay. I would like to appeal to Joy to get in touch to let us know that she is safe.”
