Police are searching a property in Shepherd’s Bush in relation to the disappearance of a woman 15 years ago.
Officers were in Tunis Road on Monday (January 25) after the woman, who would be aged around 90, was reported missing by Hammersmith and Fulham Council last month.
They say the search is likely to take some time due to the condition of the property, but at this stage there is no evidence to suggest a crime has been committed.
The woman, who was around 75 when she was last seen, was reported missing by council officials on December 8 2015.
Police say they are not revealing the identity of the woman.
