Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the well-being of a Mexican woman who has been missing in the UK for almost two weeks.

Gabriella Montanez, 25, was last seen at her parents' flat in Atherley Road, Shirley, Southampton, at about 4am on May 19 after an argument about her cooking a meal late at night.

A Hampshire police spokeswoman said: "Gabriella also is known as Gaby. She is a Mexican national who has been in England for seven months with her parents. She speaks perfect English with an American accent. Gabriella has no phone, transport, money or bank account. She took no clothing with her and has no known friends.

"Anyone who knows where Gabriella can be located is asked to ring Detective Inspector Philip Scrase at Southampton Central on 0845 045 45 45."

Ms Montanez is 5ft 2ins tall and slim with long, light brown hair. When last seen, she was wearing a pink sweater, black tracksuit trousers and sandals.
