A heartbroken mum has paid tribute to her “beautiful” and “amazing” daughter who was found dead in a home in Woking.

The 10-year-old, who has been named locally as Sara Sharif, was discovered by police in Hammond Road at around 2.50am on August 10. 

Her mother, Olga Sharif has since said her “life will never be the same”, as reported by the Sun.  

In a tribute to her only daughter, the 36-year-old said: “Sara was so beautiful. I can’t believe she’s dead.

“My life will never be the same again. Sara should be with me right now.

"She was too young.

“Sara was an amazing child.”

Olga described how Sara had many friends at school, was learning to ride a bike, and bonded with her mother over a shared love of crafts.

She added: “She had lots of friends at school and she would get on with anyone.

“Whenever I picked her up I would hear kids shouting ‘Bye Sara’.

“Sara was invited to every birthday party in the class and every sleepover, she was so outgoing, much more social than me.”

“Sara always stayed close to me. She’s the one daughter that I have, and I always wanted a daughter.

“I had been teaching her how to ride a bike, and she’d get annoyed that her brother could go faster than her.”

Olga was on her way to Poland when she was called by the police who informed her of devastating news.

She added: “I was on my way to Poland when they called to say, ‘You need to come to England and come to the police station in Dover’.

“He told me she could not say why over the phone, but when I called again they told me to pull over, so we did.

“Then she told me Sara had been found dead in a house and I just burst into tears. It took us six hours to get back to the UK.”

It was revealed by police that no other people were present at the property when Sara’s body was found.

Officers are now seeking to question three people over Sara’s murder who were all known to her.

Surrey Police have said they believe the trio left the country on August 9, a day before Sara’s body was discovered.

A spokesperson for Surrey Police said: “Inquires are ongoing to locate the three identified people we would like to speak to in connection with our investigation into the death of a 10-year-old girl in Woking.

“Detectives have confirmed that no other people were present at the address when they attended in the early hours of Thursday morning.

“The three people they would like to speak to were known to the victim.”

A post-mortem examination is due to take place today (August 15) and formal identification of the girl has yet to take place.

Last week, there was a heavy police presence at the semi-detached property on Hammond Road and neighbours told the PA news agency that a Pakistani family with six “very young” children had moved into the house in April.

Surrey Police, which did not give any further information about the victim or the three people, said officers are still at the address and that no arrests have yet been made.
