Joy Morgan was reported missing on Thursday, 7 February, although no one has heard from her so far in 2019.
The 21-year-old’s last known contact was on Thursday, 27 December when she used WhatsApp to message fellow students on her midwifery course at The University of Hertfordshire.
The last time she was seen in person was at the Hainault Street Church on Boxing Day.
Joy’s disappearance is being investigated by Hertfordshire Police.
DCI Karena Thomas said: “We have a Senior Investigating Officer and a team of dedicated specialist staff working on this investigation to unravel all aspects of Joy’s life and assist us in finding her.
“Joy has been missing now for over a month and we, along with her family, are growing increasingly concerned for her safety.
“We also need to consider the context in which Joy has gone missing and, given the sudden nature of her disappearance and the non-contact with her friends, family and with the fellow worshippers at her church, at this stage, we have to consider that she may have come to harm.
“I can confirm that we are treating Joy’s disappearance as suspicious and we are investing considerable resources to establish what has happened to her.”
A 40-year-old man from Greater London has been arrested on suspicion of murder and released on bail while enquiries continue, although police say they’re keeping an open mind about Joy’s disappearance.
DCI Thomas added: “I must stress that this enquiry doesn’t end with that arrest. It was a line of enquiry that we needed to follow and we have much more to learn about what has happened to Joy.”
Anyone who has seen Joy since she was reported missing, or has information about where she has been, is asked to call Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number 101.
Those who believe they might be with Joy now, or have seen her in the last few moments, is advised to call 999 immediately. You can also report information online at www.herts.police.uk/report.
