Alexandra Morgan, 34, from Sissinghurst, Kent, was last seen at a petrol station close to Cranbrook at 7.20am on Sunday November 14.
Kent Police are treating the disappearance of Ms Morgan as a potential murder inquiry and have said her family have not heard from her since November 14 which is ‘completely out of character.’
Two men have been arrested in connection with Ms Morgan’s disappearance- a 53-year-old from Hastings on Friday and a 40-year-old from St Leonards-on-Sea on Thursday.
A photo of Ms Morgan’s white Mini Cooper was released by police which has a black roof and registration number MF55 YHM.
Officers have established that it made journeys between her home and towards Hastings on Sunday November 14 and Monday November 15.
Kent Police are being supported by officers from the Sussex force to conduct an extensive search of four locations in Hastings and St Leonards-on-Sea in the hunt for Ms Morgan.

Replying to a friend who asked where she had been she wrote: ‘Living the best life where nobody followed my every move.’
Another concerned friend said she had also been ‘wondering where she had gone’ and ‘hoped all was ok.’
A 2019 post also referenced a potential stalker, onderskrif: ‘Hi stalker.’
The 34-year-old wrote: ‘Stop stalking my page lovelies.
‘It’s quite sad… not only that but you’re making it more obvious by the day, seeing as we are not even friends on Facebook.
‘Nothing to see here pal unless I want you too… If you carry on I’ll post your antics for all to see. Have a lovely day!’

Rose McAuley, 32, petrol station manager and friend of Ms Morgan’s served her on the morning she vanished and said she bought fuel, coffee and a snack.
Ms McAuley said she came in early in the morning which was unlike her and was ‘done up’ and she described her disappearance as a ‘complete mystery.’
She said she never gets embarrassed so she does not think she is afraid to come home.
As police continue their inquiries, residents can expect to see more officers in the area.
Detective Chief Inspector Neil Kimber, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, gesê: ‘It is completely out of character for Alexandra not to contact her family and we are now treating this case as a potential murder.
‘While we continue our investigation, I would urge anyone who may have seen Alexandra or her white Mini Cooper with a black roof to contact us.
‘If you think you may have seen Alexandra or something suspicious but are not sure, please do not hesitate to call and let us know.’
