Alice Gross Latest - Man Arrested on Suspicion of Murder

Police say enquiry remains a missing person investigation

Police investigating the disappearance of 14-year-old Alice Gross have arrested a man on suspicion of murder.

A 25 year old man was detained in the Ealing area on Saturday (6th September) at around 5pm and is currently in custody at a west London police station. The arrest was made due to information detectives received on Saturday.

Police say that all lines of enquiry are still open at this time and this remains a missing person investigation at this stage. They are continued to appeal for witness and information in relation to the last known movements of Alice.

Earlier in the day an appeal was issued to two groups of towpath cyclists who were cycling by the Grand Union Canal at the time of Alice's disappearance. That appeal was repeated after the arrest was made.

Anyone who has seen Alice or has information that may assist the investigation should call the Incident Room on 020 8358 0100 or Ealing Missing Persons Unit on 020 8246 1018 or 101. Alternatively call the charity Missing People on 116000.

Alice's sister, Nina, has set up a Facebook page to appeal for information which can be found here:
