‘We haven’t heard from her since, her phone’s been off and we just need any information that we can get at this point,’ sister Theresa Newchurch told 7News. 

An emotional Ms Newchurch said her sister loved her child ‘more than life itself’. 

‘There’s no type of way she would leave her daughter,’ she said. ‘Her daughter is her world.’  

The young Adelaide mum arrived at the property to collect her daughter from a scheduled visit with her ex-partner, then vanished. 

A neighbour said she heard screams coming from the residence earlier this week.

‘At midnight, I heard her screaming, incoherently. Screaming at the top of her voice, sobbing,’ Bute local Cheryl Sawley said. 

Ms Sawley said she also heard someone attempting to calm the 21-year-old down.

Police launched an extensive search effort in the Bute area on Friday using local officers, helicopters, mounted police, and volunteer firefighters, and the State Emergency Service. 

The search began again at 7am on Saturday with police asking Bute residents to check their properties, especially any sheds and outbuildings. 

Charlene is 157cm tall with a slim build, brown eyes, and long black hair.

She has a tattoo on her collarbone reading ‘Every dark night has a brighter day’ and a lower left arm tattoo that says ‘Family is forever’.

Anyone who sees Charlene Warrior or has any information on her whereabouts, is urged to contact South Australian police.
