There is growing concern for a missing 33-year-old man who is epileptic and thought to be without his medication.
Steven Carolan, who is from Kensington, was last seen getting off a bus near Putney Bridge at around 6:50pm on Friday (3 November).
Earlier that day he had caught a route 28 bus at round 5:28pm from West Kensington travelling towards Wandsworth.
Later he boarded a route 220 bus from Mapleton Crescent in Wandsworth, outside Southside Shopping Centre at 6:35pm, before disembarking at Putney Bridge 15 minutes later.
He was last known to be wearing black clothing and black trainers with white soles.
Steven's parents are very concerned about him. His mother, Sandra Carolan, said, “Steven, you’re not in any trouble. Your Mum and Dad want to help, we can help you and we love you very much.”
Detective Inspector Fiona Van Kampen, a from the missing persons team, said, "We have carried out a number of enquiries to try and find Steven and we are appealing for anyone who may have seen him last Friday, or in the week since, to contact us."
