The sister of a woman who went missing in May has filmed an emotional appeal asking her to get in touch.

Gabriela Montanez, 25, who has bipolar disorder, has not been seen since she left her parents' home in Atherley Road, Southampton, following an argument.

Her parents have since returned to their home country of Mexico.

In the filmed appeal, Ms Montanez's sister Monica says: "I just want to know you're fine".

Police say they have carried out an extensive investigation to find Ms Montanez, who is also a Mexican national.

In the appeal, Monica Montanez says: "Every single day I think about you, and sometimes I have bad dreams.

"I just want to know if you're fine."

Det Insp Phil Scrase said police were still searching for the missing woman.

"Gaby, if you are reading this or watching the appeal from Monica, then please get in touch with us and let us know you are safe," he said.

"I know you argued with your parents and may not wish to talk to them, but your sister and other family members are extremely worried about you and so am I."
