A 21-year-old woman has been missing for more than two weeks, police say.

The mother of Amber Rose Barnett, also known as Amber McCants, reported her missing, saying was last seen at her home on Feb. 17, according to the Biloxi Police Department.

Since then, Barnett reportedly has been seen around West Harrison High School, where she was looking at a mobile home to rent, Police Sgt. O’Neil Adams said in a news release.

Before she was reported missing, she had been around Feed My Sheep in Gulfport, Adams said.

Barnett’s mother told police she normally talks to her daughter at least every other day, but said Amber has not been answering her phone.

Barnett is 5-feet-1, weighs about 150 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.
