has a tattoo of a tiger on the left hand side of her back.

Wedding and engagement rings belonging to missing Parmelia mother of three Iveta Mitchell have been found on the front doormat of her home.
Mrs Mitchell's husband Chad said last night that he contacted police investigating his wife's disappearance after the discovery, which led forensic experts to search the Meares Avenue home yesterday.
Mr Mitchell said that the discovery both caused him concern and gave him hope that his wife was alive.
He repeated his plea for her or anyone with information to contact police.
Police said their search of the home was a routine part of their inquiries into the 37-year-old's disappearance.
Mrs Mitchell was last seen leaving the family home about 1am on May 3 after an argument with her husband over money.
She was reported missing that day.
The forensic officers and detectives were at the house throughout yesterday afternoon.
Last week, major crime squad detectives said they held concerns for Mrs Mitchell but were not treating the matter as a murder inquiry.
Det-Insp. David Bryson said police were particularly concerned that Mrs Mitchell had not contacted her family on Mother's Day as she was close to her children.
Police also had unconfirmed sightings of Mrs Mitchell, including from a motorist who said he saw her walking on Old Mandurah Road on May 9.
After Mrs Mitchell disappeared, her husband said she went for a walk because she was upset.
"We had a fight and woke our seven-year-old and he was crying so that upset her," he said at the time.
In pleading for help to find his wife, Mr Mitchell said her disappearance was out of character and anyone who might have known where his wife might stay had been contacted.
She did not take her wallet or phone when she left and it was unusual for her to remain out of contact with her family for such a long period.
SES volunteers searched bush near Mrs Mitchell's home while family and friends have put up posters from Perth to Pinjarra seeking the public's help.

A close friend of Iveta Mitchell believes the missing Parmelia mother is still alive and hopes she will make contact soon.
Kristy Marsh describes Mrs Mitchell, to whom she is related through marriage, as a best friend and who she loves like a sister.
She spoke to The West Australian this week as major crime squad detectives finished a search of a Kwinana Beach quarry and tip for the 37-year-old woman's body.
Police have previously said they hold grave concerns for her welfare but are not treating her disappearance as a murder.
They have said it is particularly unusual for her not to make contact with her children on Mother's Day.
"It has just dumbfounded me that she would not be in contact with us and that has thrown a lot of people because it's not like her to do this at all," Mrs Marsh said.
"We were always talking. Our kids go to the same school, she would be straight into the driveway straight after we drop the kids off and we would sit here for hours just chatting away about anything."
Mrs Mitchell left her Meares Avenue home about 1am on May 3 after a fight with her husband Chad over money. She was reported missing later that day.
Police have received a number of unconfirmed sightings of Mrs Mitchell, including from a motorist who claims he saw her walking near Old Mandurah Road about 7pm on May 9.
On May 18, Mr Mitchell found his wife's wedding and engagement rings on their front doormat. This led police to search the home.
Mrs Marsh said the sightings and rings gave her hope.
"It gives us hope that she is still around so she would be looking on and hopefully she will come home sooner, rather than later," she said.
Mrs Marsh said Mrs Mitchell's family and friends were holding up well, given the circumstances.
"I'm actually quite surprised that they have been able to fully hold it together," she said. "It does put a lot of strain on relationships and everyone involved."

Now, the family home of missing mother Iveta Mitchell and her husband Chad is going on the market.
The four-bedroom Parmelia house has been listed for $250,000 $30,000 below the median house price for the suburb.
It comes more than a year after the mother of three's mystery disappearance.
In May last year, Mr Mitchell told police his wife left their home and went to a neighbouring park after a late-night argument.
The 37-year-old has not been seen or heard from since and police are now treating the case as a murder investigation.
Mr Mitchell, his eldest stepson, Peter Read, and youngest son, Kyle, no longer live at the home, which has had minor cosmetic work in the past month.
Sources close to the family said the property was put on the market last Thursday after the family fell behind with mortgage repayments.
In the weeks after Mrs Mitchell's disappearance, Mr Mitchell revealed his wife was angry with him before she disappeared because he was blowing their mortgage money on hard drugs.
In an interview with 60 Minutes, Mr Mitchell said he and his wife had argued over finances, revealing he had spent some of his pay on speed.
He also claimed that police viewed him as the "No.1 person" in the investigation, but has consistently denied murdering his wife.
Selling agent Rod Dohnt said he was confident of finding a buyer for the Mitchell home.
Despite it being a bit untidy, he said it offered "extremely good value".
"It's a four-by-two that needs some work, but the price really reflects the market and the condition of the house," he said. "It's not being undersold for any particular reason. It's just another house to me."
The home, on 703sqm, is being marketed with the catch line 'Splish! Splash!' for its pool and outside entertaining area.
Police have repeatedly searched the home and a Kwinana Beach quarry, where Mr Mitchell had previously worked.
In November last year, Mr Mitchell was fined $800 after being found guilty of receiving a stolen jet-ski and trailer worth $8000, uncovered during one of the police searches.
Magistrate Denis Temby accepted that Mr Mitchell did not know the property he had acquired was stolen.
Those close to her say they pray for answers every day.
"It hurts everyone. It's the not knowing that's the problem," her grandmother Betty Gertau said.
Ms Mitchell was reported missing after a fight with her husband Chad Mitchell, who has always denied any involvement in her disappearance.
Ms Gertau says she's positive Ms Mitchell has been murdered but is adamant Mr Mitchell had nothing to do with it.
"We believe she was picked up that night and taken away - and that's the last we ever saw of her," she said.
The 81-year-old believes the case has stalled and and wants the State Government to set up a reward to to help catch Ms Mitchell's killer.
