Petra Srncova, who lives in the Camberwell area, was reported missing on Friday December 3 by a concerned work colleague.
She was last seen leaving work on the evening of November 28 and is thought to have been wearing a green coat and carrying a red backpack.
A man has been arrested in connection with her disappearance and remains in custody, the Metropolitan Police said.
The force said it has contacted Ms Srncova's family in her native Czech Republic, who have not heard from her.
Police added that they are growing increasingly concerned for Ms Srncova's welfare and are asking anyone who has seen her, or has information about her whereabouts, to contact them immediately.
