Marathon Runner Missing After Finishing 20th

A female athlete from Sierra Leone has disappeared after finishing 20th in the London Marathon.

Mami Konneh Lahun did not return to her accommodation in Greenwich, where she had been staying since April 7, after Sunday's race.  

The 24-year-old is due to fly home later today.

Police said she has no known links to the UK and does not have a mobile phone.

Ms Konneh Lahun is reportedly Sierra Leone's fastest-ever female 5,000m and 10,000m runner. Last year, she won the Sierra Leone and Liberia marathons.
