Police release CCTV images of missing York student Harvey Parker

Anyone with information should contact the Metropolitan Police and quote CAD 3134/18DEC21

The Metropolitan Police have released CCTV images of missing York student Harvey Parker.

Harvey Parker, a music student at The University of York, was last seen leaving Heaven Nightclub by Charing Cross Railway Station in Westminster at 2:15 am on Friday 17th December.

Further CCTV has been identified of Harvey then entering Craven Street and walking south towards the Embankment.

The Metropolitan Police said: “Harvey left the nightclub alone and there is nothing to indicate any reason for him to go missing.”

Detective Sergeant Dick Nation, from the Central South Safeguarding Unit, said:“We have not been able to contact Harvey and his family have still heard nothing from him. There is no reason why he should have gone missing and his family and friends are extremely worried by his disappearance.”

He continued: “To assist the public, we are releasing images of Harvey from the night he went missing. We know he was last seen on CCTV on Craven Street, walking south towards Embankment. This is a terrible ordeal for Harvey’s family and friends and I would urge anyone who saw him or has any information to contact police immediately.”

Police and Harvey’s family and friends are growing increasingly concerned for their welfare.

Harvey’s mum, Amanda Parker, told Metro she “can’t think of any reason” why Harvey would go missing, describing them as “really upbeat”. They have since phoned or visited every major hospital in London in an attempt to find Harvey.

She continued: “At the same time, Harvey’s very vulnerable and can misread a situation and get overwhelmed. Harvey can’t necessarily read social situations and is outgoing – and that’s when autism really comes into play because what to do next would be a real challenge.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC with the reference CAD 3134/18DEC21.
