A WOMAN who went missing from her home in Southampton last spring has been found safe and well.

Gabriela Montanez, 25, disappeared from her home in Atherley Road on May 19, last year.

Gabriela, who had been living in Southampton with her parents, was located on Friday, March 14 in London and police have spoken with her and are content she is safe and well.

Her sister recently made a video appeal for Gabriela to get in contact from the family home in Mexico, after they returned there from Southampton and last year her parents made an emotional appeal via the Daily Echo.

Officers would like to thank the media for their assistance since last May with trying to locate Gabriela and also for the public for their response.
