In a Facebook post yesterday, officers stressed that the woman is not in any trouble, but may have information that could assist with the investigation.
Andy Kemp, a former police officer, has been hired by the 21-year-old student's family to help find him after he disappeared leaving a friend's house in Esher on Sunday, February 26, at 2am.
He was spotted on CCTV travelling to Claygate from Clapham Junction station on Saturday, but officers said not a "single sighting" of the student has been reported.
When he was last seen leaving his friend's house in Esher he had been wearing a grey formal jacket, blue jeans and smart shoes and was carrying a black over-the-shoulder Hugo Boss bag.
He was not wearing his glasses at the time.
Mr Ivanelo's permanent address is in south west London but he has student housing in Guildford. Officers said he has not been seen at either address since his disappearance.
If you are this horse rider or know who she is please call Surrey Police on 101 and quote Operation Decibel 45170020251.
