A road in Warwickshire has been cordoned off as police continue their search for a missing Polish woman.

Elzbieta Kinczyk (known as Ela), 23, of Leamington Spa, was last seen on 6 June when she left her home saying she was meeting a friend in town.

An area off Harbury Lane, between Leamington Spa and Bishops Tachbrook, is cordoned off while other areas are also being searched.

Ms Kinczyk's family said her disappearance was out of character.

Wife and mother

Police said the searches were a result of information received from a variety of sources.

Ms Kinczyk was last seen when she met a friend outside Rangemaster in Grove Place, off Brunswick Street, Leamington Spa.

She has not been seen since.

Det Supt Graeme Pallister said: "We are aware several people will have passed Ela as she went to meet her friend as we have CCTV images of them.

"We urge those people to come forward and speak to us."

The Rangemaster factory is just a few minutes from Ms Kinczyk's home, which she shared with her sister and brother-in-law. She left to go there at 1245 BST.

Her family described her as a devoted wife and mother who was working in Leamington to send money to her husband and five-year-old son in Poland.
