Claudia Lawrence: Police hunt two men and two vehicles

Detectives investigating the disappearance of Claudia Lawrence want to trace two men and two vehicles seen near her home. It's five years since the chef disappeared. New forensic examinations found fingerprints of people who have not yet come forward and DNA on a cigarette butt in Claudia's car.

One man was seen outside her house in Heworth Road at 6.45am on March 19 - and was described as 55 to 65, with grey hair, and wearing a sandy mac.

Police also want to find a man in his 30s, about 5ft 8in tall, with brown hair with a fringe, who was seen in the road the week before her disappearance.

Police also want to trace the owners and users of a Vauxhall Astra van which was parked opposite her house at about 9pm on March 18, and a light hatchback car, possibly a Ford Focus, which braked unexpectedly in her road at 5.42am the next morning.
