Detective Sergeant Dick Nation, from the Central South Safeguarding Unit, said Harvey was last seen on Craven Street, walking south towards Embankment 

Detective Sergeant Dick Nation, from the Central South Safeguarding Unit, said: ‘We have not been able to contact Harvey, and his family have still heard nothing from him.

‘There is no reason why he should have gone missing and his family and friends are extremely worried by his disappearance.

‘To assist the public, we are releasing images of Harvey from the night he went missing.

‘We know he was last seen on CCTV on Craven Street, walking south towards Embankment. 

‘This is a terrible ordeal for Harvey’s family and friends and I would urge anyone who saw him or has any information to contact police immediately.’

The Theatre Royal Stratford East said Harvey was a front-of-house member of staff and issued an appeal for help in the search.

The tweet was shared by playwright Jonathan Harvey and others.

A friend of Harvey’s said the University of York music student had been to a Little Simz concert in Brixton, south London, before going to Heaven nightclub.

Little Simz has since retweeted an appeal by a friend of Harvey’s.

Harvey’s relatives have also taken to social media to ask for help in locating him, including uncle Sylvester Lennon who tagged LBC presenter James O’Brien in the appeal.

Mr O’Brien responded, saying he would mention Harvey on his show after saying he had seen a missing poster on his way in to work.

Another unnamed relative added that the family was ‘desperate’ for information and asked for the public to re-post the police’s online appeal to find Harvey.

A further Twitter user added: ‘He is 20, autistic, non-binary, vulnerable.

‘He’s missed 3 work shifts and not on socials since 1.30 Friday morning – unheard of – and not in touch with any friends.

‘His family has visited all London hospitals and informed police.’

One of Harvey’s school friends Angus Colwell, who is an editorial assistant at the Spectator, added on Twitter: ‘I’ve known Harvey for years, and several of my close friends are v tight with him.

‘Please contact the police if you know / see anything. We are all worried.’

Another school friend, Oxford University student Alex Foster, wrote: ‘Harvey has been missing since Thursday evening.

‘They went to a concert in Brixton before going to Heaven Nightclub near Embankment and leaving there at 4am.

‘If you see them or have any information, PLEASE text me.’ 

Following an appeal, a police spokesperson said: ‘Harvey left the nightclub alone and there is nothing to indicate any reason for him to go missing.

‘Police and Harvey’s family are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.
