Owami Davies, 24, has not been seen since she was spotted just after midnight in Derby Road, west Croydon, on July 7.
She had left her family home in Grays, Essex, earlier.
Her family have not heard from her and she has not turned up for work since.
Two men aged 23 and 27 have been detained in the Croydon area and were in custody at a police station in South London.
The Metropolitan Police said: "Detectives from the Met's Specialist Crime Command are now leading enquiries to locate 24-year-old Owami Davies because they have the resources and expertise required for a complex investigation."
However, police continue to treat the investigation as a missing person case, and previously asked people to check any outbuildings in the west Croydon area.
Detective Constable Marie Spear said: "Owami was in a vulnerable state when she was last seen and we need the public's help in piecing together her movements on the night she went missing.
"I would urge anyone who has seen her, or knows where she is, to contact police immediately.
"I'd also ask people in the west Croydon area to check their sheds and outbuildings and report anything suspicious or out of the ordinary."
Anyone with information about Owami's whereabouts can call police on 101, tweet @MetCC with reference 22MIS025307 or call the Missing People charity on 116 000.
