The 21st anniversary appeal into the disappearance of missing mother Nicola Payne focused on two men spotted near the area she was last seen.
Nicola, who was 18 at the time, left her boyfriend's home in Winston Avenue, Wood End, Coventry, at around midday on December 14, 1991, heading to her parents' home in nearby Woodway Close. She is thought to have walked across a patch of land known as the Black Pad - but never arrived.
Two men were spotted standing near a blue Ford Capri nearby that day. They have never been identified.
Both men were white, one around 6ft and wearing a brown leather jacket, and the other 6ft 3ins and thin, with short brown hair parted to the side, and wearing a brown bomber-style jacket with a hoodie and light blue denim jeans.
They were standing next to the Capri, which was parked by the Cardinal Wiseman school playing fields, which borders the Black Pad. It is thought to be a 1980 or V-reg, with a black spoiler and dirty wheels.
Police today said they are unable to confirm whether the new evidence relates to the two men.
