The police and family of a 20-year-old student who has gone missing following a night out in London say they are “extremely worried”.

Harvey Parker was last seen at about 2.15am on Friday after leaving Heaven nightclub near Charing Cross rail station in Westminster alone.

Harvey was later seen on CCTV entering Craven Street and walking south towards the Embankment.

Harvey's phone has remained unanswered and the Metropolitan Police say there is “nothing to indicate any reason for him to go missing”.

Amanda Parker, Harvey's mother, told the Metro the talented musician has autism and didn’t turn up for work at the Theatre Royal Stratford East on Friday.

She said Harvey can misread social situations and could be particularly vulnerable. She described Harvey as a "phenomenal" musician.

Friends said the University of York music student had been to a Lil Simz concert in Brixton, south London, before going to Heaven Nightclub.

Police described Harvey, of Lambeth, south London, as 5ft 8ins tall, of mixed race, with a slight build and short black hair.

“We have not been able to speak to Harvey on his phone and we are not aware of any reason why he should not be in contact with his family," Detective Sergeant Dick Nation, of the Area South safeguarding unit, said.

“Both his family and police are extremely worried by his disappearance and we are asking for anyone who may have seen Harvey after he left the club, or has any other information, to call police immediately.”

A message on Twitter from the University of York said people are “very concerned about our missing student Harvey Parker”.

A notice posted on the London LGBT+ Forums’ Network said “my friend is missing” and urged people to get in contact.
