The family of a Jewish woman from Hampstead Garden Suburb who has not been heard from  since Thursday's bombings in London are appealing for information as to her whereabouts.

Miriam Hyman, 32, called her father from outside Kings Cross station at 9.45am on Thursday morning and said she was fine, but her family has not heard from her since.

Miriam, a freelance picture editor was on her way to work in Canary Wharf when terrorists struck at the heart of London and was told by her agency not to come in.

Her family, parents John and Mavis along with sister Esther are anxious to find out what happened to Miriam.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, her sister Esther said: "Something is stopping her answering the phone or contacting us. It’s so scary because my dad spoke to her as soon as he heard about the bombs. She told him she was sitting on the pavement outside King’s Cross after her train had been evacuated at the station. We have heard nothing since and are frantic.”

Her father said: "We are checking hospitals and contacted the police. It may be that she is in hospital suffering from shock or has lost her purse with her identification in it.".  He added: "We would appeal to anyone who knows anything of her whereabouts to please get in touch."

The former pupil of Copthall School in Mill Hill is described as 5ft 2inches, slim with an olive complexion and has long dark hair and brown eyes.
