One-week on from the disappearance of a man from Greenwich, detectives are renewing appeals for information to trace his whereabouts.
Seyed Kham, 49, who is from Thamesmead was last seen at his home address at approximately 5pm on Wednesday, 24 January when he left to go to work at A-Z Carpets, High Road Ilford.
He made a phonecall at 6:55pm that evening on the High Road in Ilford and hasn’t been heard from since.
Mr Khan’s family, and officers, are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare as his disappearance is out of character.
His eldest son, Khalil, said: “My father is a kind and well respected man, he is much loved by his family and friends. We are all in great grief, especially my five-year-old brother. All we want is for our dad to come back to us.”
Mr Khan is an Asian man, around 5ft 9ins tall, of medium build with short black hair. At the time of his disappearance he was wearing blue jeans, a black jacket and grey trainers.
He is known to frequent the Thamesmead, Plumstead, Woolwich and Ilford areas.
The Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command is leading the investigation into his disappearance and is continuing to work closely with colleagues in Greenwich and Redbridge Boroughs.
Detective Inspector Richard Leonard, said: “It has now been a week since Mr Khan left his place of employment to answer his phone. We would like to speak with whomever placed that call, or anyone who saw where he went. Somebody must have seen him.
“His family are desperate for information and I would urge anyone who is yet to speak with officers to come forward.”
