Police in the US are searching for two burglars who broke into Miley Cyrus' home and stole a car and jewellery.

The Los Angeles Police Department said officers from the department's North Hollywood station responded to a report of a burglary at the singer's home in the San Fernando Valley on May 30.

They said a man and a woman scaled a fence and got inside the house and garage.

Wrecking Ball singer Miley, 21, wasn't at the property at the time, and the house was empty.

A 2014 Maserati luxury sedan and an unspecified amount of jewellery were taken.

Last month Miley obtained a temporary restraining order against a man who was detained by police while trying to meet her.
