A man has been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a mother from Thornton Heath.

Janelle Duncan-Bailey, 25, of Pawsons Road, was last seen between 5am and 5.30am on Wednesday after leaving her two children with a friend in Bromley to go to a family function.

She left her friend’s address at around 4am to return to Thornton Heath on the understanding that she would collect her two boys, aged two and seven, later that morning.

But her friend reported her missing shortly after 4.20pm when she failed to show up.

It has also emerged Ms Duncan-Bailey, described as black, 5ft 5ins in height, medium build, with shoulder length black hair with possible extensions, left another address in Thornton Heath at 4.30am after an incident in which the police were called.

She was last seen walking towards flats in Limpsfield Avenue.

Ms Duncan-Bailey’s disappearance is described totally out of character. Anyone who can help is asked to contact 020 8721 4054 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The suspect, 30, was detained yesterday evening. He was taken to a south London police station where he remains in custody.
