·1-min read

A second man has been charged over the suspicious disappearance of Melbourne woman Maryam Hamka.

A 26-year-old Richmond man faces charges of assisting an offender (murder) and drug offences. He is due in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

In August, Ms Hamka's boyfriend, 41-year-old Toby Loughnane, was charged with her murder and remanded in custody.

Ms Hamka was last seen leaving a Brunswick Woolworths on April 10.

She is described as 165cm tall, with a thin build and long black hair, brown eyes and an olive complexion.

The 36-year-old was last seen wearing a black dress and had told family she intended to visit a friend in Brighton.

Ms Hamka was reported missing on April 15. She is yet to be found and the investigation remains ongoing.

Police want information from anyone who say a red 2015 Mazda 3 hatchback with distinctive damage to the front left guard between April 13 and April 15.

Investigators believe that during this period, the vehicle made a number of trips to and from the Brighton area and was being driven by a sole male occupant.

The car has been seized by investigators.
