She was believed to be wearing a dark hooded top, tracksuit bottoms and a dark jacket at the time of her disappearance.

A helicopter from the National Police Air Service was involved in the search from Miss Higgins two days after her disappearance.

Brent Police have appealed for anyone who has seen Miss Higgins to call 101.
