Human remains have been found in Neasden in connection with the disappearance of a 20-year-old Cricklewood woman.

On Monday (June 14) human remains were found by officers searching Neasden Recreation Ground, in Aboyne Road. 

Agnes Akom, also known as Dora, left her home address in Cricklewood Broadway on May 9.

The 20-year-old was reported missing two days later.

Agnes, who moved to the UK from Hungary three years ago, was not seen or heard from since the day of her disappearance and was silent on social media which was "completely out of character", the Met Police previously reported.

Met officers await forensic identification and Agnes' family have been informed of this development.
