Police have issued an appeal for three people to come forward who may have information about what happened to a man who has been missing for ten weeks.

Father-of-two Ambrose Ball, 31, has not been seen since January 24 after a night out at The Fox pub in Green Lanes, Palmers Green.

In the early hours of the morning a car belonging to Mr Ball, also known as Jay, was found on the border of Tottenham and Walthamstow after having been in a serious accident.

According to police, the car lost one of its front wheels and continued further down the road, coming to rest next to Tottenham Marshes.

A fingertip and marine search was carried out across Walthamstow Wetlands and the Marshes, three days later, but he was not found.

At approximately 3.10am the BMW collided with the central reservation in Watermead Way at the junction with Sedge Road, Tottenham.

Now, ten weeks on police said there may have been a number of witnesses to the crash.

According to officers, the driver of a seven tonne truck stopped at the scene and got out.

He is described as a black man, aged about 40.

The driver of a red Ford Fiesta who is described as a black man, of slim build and between 30 and 40 years old is also said to have been in the area.

The driver of a dark-coloured hatchback car is said to have stopped at the scene and got out.
