Alice Gross of Hanwell, west London, was last seen by her family at about 13:00 BST on 28 August. CCTV footage shows her walking along the Grand Union Canal tow path near the Holiday Inn at Brentford Lock between 13:30 BST and 17:30 BST. She is about 5ft1/2 , shoulder length brown hair and is wearing blue jeans and a dark green knitted cardigan. She doesn’t have any keys, money or even her Oyster card, and this behaviour is extremely odd. She is very vulnerable and we are very worried about her.

A statement from her mother reads "Alice had been diagnosed with anorexia and was going through a tough time in a number of ways and we are wondering whether her disappearance had anything to do with that, but we don’t know.
"That is the main reason why we have had such concerns for her well being and her health in particular."
The teenager had told her family she was going to meet up with friends but went for a walk alone on the riverside tow path, CCTV footage showed.
"We are desperate to know that she is safe and we really want her to know that we want her home, and we are desperate for her to know how loved she is,"
If you have any information on Alice’s whereabouts please call 101, her dissappearance is currently being investigated by the Metropolitan Homicide Team
Just to add, there is now a main suspect in this case, it’s mid September and Alice is still missing, along with suspect Arnis Zalkalns who could have fled to Latvia.
Mr Zalkalns, who was jailed for seven years in Latvia for killing his wife in 1998, was seen riding a mountain bike along the canal path 15 minutes after Alice walked the same way.
He has been missing since 3 September. The Met Police said he had not taken his passport, but officers were looking into whether he had travelled under someone else’s or a fake one.
The bike was found by officers on Friday, but officers would not say where.
