Stefana Otilia Malinici, known as Otilia, left her family home in Beccles Drive, Barking, on September 6.

The 37-year-old was last seen on CCTV at a supermarket on Ilford’s Green Lane three days later.

Otilia is originally from Romania and has reddish, bobbed hair.

She wore a black top with large light-coloured motif, dark tight jeans or leggings and a dark coloured three-quarter length fitted jacket when she was last seen.

“I want to assure Otilia, or anyone that knows her, that police are here to help and just want to make sure she is safe and well,” said DS Mike Rapp of the Met’s East Area Missing Persons unit.
