Police have released CCTV footage of a missing man who was last seen buying food at a McDonald’s drive-thru two weeks ago, as his family say they are ‘devastated’.

Justin Henry was reported missing to police on Monday October 16 and was last seen in person the night before, at his partner’s home in Brixton.

Police have released CCTV footage of the 34-year-old buying a meal at a McDonald’s drive-thru in London Road, Croydon, on Sunday night around 9.50pm.

His family have issued a plea for information for his whereabouts, saying they are ‘desperate for answers’ about the ‘loving and happy’ man.

Police are looking to establish a timeline of Mr Henry’s movements on Sunday night and Monday morning – when his silver Mercedes was located.

Mr Henry hasn’t been seen in person since he left his partner’s Brixton home which his family say is ‘totally out of character’.

Later on that Sunday evening, CCTV spotted the missing man buying food at a McDonald’s drive-thru in his Mercedes E Class.

Officers say they believe the 34-year-old then drove to Waddon New Road nearby, where his car remained for two-and-a-half hours.

It was later found in Kingswood Drive, a 30 minute drive away, on Monday.

Police say it’s not known who drove the car to that road because the indistinct CCTV footage doesn’t clearly show the driver.

But Mr Henry’s family insist it is not him driving the car when it parked on the road at around 1am. 

A spokesperson for Mr Henry’s family said: ‘Our family is devastated and want answers. 

‘Justin is a loving and happy person and wouldn’t hurt a fly. This is a plea to the public for information on where Justin is. 

‘This could be your son or loved one. Justin comes from a very close family who are desperate for answers.’ 

Justin was picked up on CCTV at around 9:50pm buying food at a McDonald's drive-thru

Detective Chief Inspector Matt Webb, of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: ‘We hope that in releasing this footage it will jog someone’s memory and help us give Justin’s family the answers they are desperately waiting for. 

‘Our investigation remains ongoing and I want to reiterate my commitment to his family that the search to find Mr Henry continues.

‘I would ask the public to look at this footage. Do you remember seeing this car? Do you remember seeing the driver? Did you see this car after it left McDonald’s? 

‘Mr Henry’s family are depending on your answers to these questions. Please come forward and share what you know either with police directly or anonymously via CrimeStoppers.’

Police say two men, 28 and 29, have been charged in connection with the investigation.

On Wednesday 18 October, a 27-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping but she has since been bailed pending further enquiries. 

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 and quote Operation Ashgulf or CAD 5224/21Oct.
