A desperate search has been launched to find a mother who has been missing for almost a month.

Taiwo Balogun, 53, was last seen in CCTV footage from a shop in Dartford, Kent, on December 1.

Officers said she is considered vulnerable and may be a risk to herself.

Mrs Balogun’s family are ‘very worried’ about her disappearance, saying she is ‘greatly loved and a massive part of our lives’.

Footage from the shop on Crayford Road shows her wearing a black jacket with vertical stripes down the arms, dark trousers and black and white trainers.

Mrs Balogun, who is 5ft 9ins tall and from Bexley, south-east London, was also carrying an orange carrier bag in the video, which was taken just before 2.30pm.

Neighbours and business owners who may have additional footage of her are urged to contact police immediately.

Detectives do not believe Mrs Balogun has been harmed by anyone, and have asked she gets in touch if she sees their appeal.

‘We are very worried about our mum,’ her family said in statement.

‘She is greatly loved and a massive part of our lives. We want nothing more than to have our mum at home with us safe and well.

‘If anyone has seen or knows where she is, please can you make contact with the police. Any information could help find her.’
