[Missing]: Mohammed Shar Subhani

Detectives are appealing for the public’s help to find a missing 27-year-old man from Heston in Hounslow.
 
Mohammed Shah Subhani, known to his family as Shah Khan, was reported missing to police by his family shortly before midnight on Tuesday, 7 May. They stated he had last been by them seen leaving his home address in Heston at around 12:15hrs that same day. He was described as wearing navy blue, Puma tracksuit bottoms, a navy blue short sleeved t-shirt and light grey Nike Air Max trainers.

He travelled to High Street, Acton where he was seen at approximately 13:45hrs.

Mohammed is Asian, 5ft 9ins tall of stocky build and has a distinctive tattoo on his left forearm with the words inscribed, “Death is certain. Life is not.”

Officers are also releasing an image of what is believed to be Mohammed’s car – a white Audi Q3, registration LC67 CXS – which was captured on CCTV travelling south on Hanworth Road, towards Whitton Road, in Hounslow at around 15:17hrs on 7 May.

The car had triggered an ANPR hit a short distance away on the A4, Transport Avenue, in Brentford around ten minutes earlier.

A well-resourced investigation run by officers based at the West Area Command Unit continues with enquiries to establish the exact circumstances of Mohammed’s disappearance. They have been provided with assistance by specialist officers from the Serious and Organised Crime unit.

Mohammed’s family are in close contact with the police and are being kept updated with any significant developments.

Detective Chief Inspector Alex Bingley, from West Area CID, said: “Mohammed’s disappearance is out of character and it has now been over two weeks since he was last seen.

“The longer he is missing, without any contact from him, the more concerning the situation has become.

“Officers retain an open mind about the circumstances and, while at this time there is no evidence to suggest Mohammed has come to any harm, we are continuing to pursue a number of lines of enquiry. Understandably, Mohammed’s family is desperate for news.

“I would urge anyone with information about Mohammed’s whereabouts, or movements, to call police immediately and help end his family’s anguish.”

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 or contact via Twitter @MetCC quote 19MIS017114.
