Police investigating Sarah Everard’s disappearance have been pictured searching a property in Kent.

Officers were spotted at the home in seaside town Deal, with a blue tent set up outside.

They also seized a car which had been parked out front.

Sarah has not been seen or heard from since she left her friend's house in Clapham, south London, at around 9pm on Wednesday, March 3.

Two arrests have already been made, including a Met Police officer in Kent.

A woman has also been arrested at the same location on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Officers were earlier searching woods just outside Ashford.

The Daily Star has approached the Metropolitan Police for comment.

Nick Ephgrave, Assistant Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police, this morning confirmed the officer was not on duty at the time Sarah went missing.

Asked if he believed she might still be alive, the officer responded: "We are searching as hard as we can to find Sarah so we really hope that is the case, of course."

The force has not revealed what the officer has been arrested for, and Mr Ephgrave would not say whether the person knows Sarah.

He told reporters at Scotland Yard: "This is a serious and significant development in our search for Sarah and the fact that the man who has been arrested is a serving Metropolitan Police officer is both shocking and deeply disturbing."

He said detectives are working "at all speed" to find out what has happened to Ms Everard, and repeated appeals for members of the public to come forward with information.

Sarah left Leathwaite Road at around 9pm on to the A205 South Circular and is thought to have walked through Clapham Common toward her house in Brixton in a journey which should have taken around 50 minutes, Scotland Yard said.

A fresh CCTV image – understood to have been discovered on a private doorbell-type camera – captured her walking alone along the A205 Poynders road, from the junction at Cavendish Road, toward Tulse Hill, which lies just south of Brixton.

It appears to suggest she walked through Clapham Common and was walking towards her home, although the force said it is unclear whether she did return to her house.

Sarah was last seen wearing a green rain jacket, navy blue trousers with a white diamond pattern, and turquoise and orange trainers.

She is thought to have been wearing green earphones and a white beanie hat.

Earlier this week, her boyfriend Josh Lowth shared a Facebook post calling for help tracing the “strong, beautiful” marketing manager.

He wrote: “Sarah is still missing. “Please share this post to help us to find her. Today, more than ever, we miss our strong, beautiful friend.”

His dad Chris told MailOnline: “We are concerned, like everybody is. We really, really want to see her back.

“The whole family is obviously very worried about her and just wants her home safely.”
