Police investigating the unsolved killings of a husband and wife in Concord, New Hampshire, are now looking for a vehicle that was near where they were last seen, authorities announced Thursday.

Detectives are looking to speak with the person who owns or drives a dark green Toyota RAV4 that was parked at the Marsh Loop trailhead on Concord's Portsmouth Road Monday, April 18, state prosecutors and Concord police said.

Stephen Reid and Djeswende Reid were found shot to death three days later near the trail. The 67-year-old and 66-year-old had been missing after going for a walk near their home on April 18.

Authorities have previously released a sketch of a male person of interest in the investigation. He was wearing a dark blue jacket, possibly with a hood, and khaki-colored pants, and he was carrying a black backpack.

Authorities investigating the murders of a husband and wife in Concord, New Hampshire, released a sketch of a person of interest.

Authorities said at a news conference that that person of interest hasn't yet been identified, though more than 200 tips have come in. There's no known connection between that person and the SUV discussed Thursday.

The reason investigators want to speak with the person who'd been driving the vehicle is to help account for as many people who were at the trail as possible the day the Reids were last seen.

"We have not been able to identify or speak with anyone associated with this vehicle," Senior Assistant Attorney General Geoffrey Ward said, adding investigators are looking to "check another box in terms of who was out there that day and what they heard or saw."

Concord Police Chief Bradley Osgood asked people to get in touch, "even if they think that they have nothing, or something trivial to provide."

More than $33,000 have been offered as a reward for information that leads to the arrest and indictment of the Reids' killer.

The person of interest was seen in the vicinity of the shooting incident on April 18.

Stephen and Reid left their apartment complex on April 18 and went for a walk toward some trails. The husband and wife were reported missing after Stephen didn't show up at an event. Their bodies were discovered the night of April 21 in the area of Broken Ground Trails.

An autopsy has found both died of multiple gunshot wounds.
