The cold case unit at the Williamson County Sheriff's Office has released two new sketches for persons of interest in Rachel Cooke's case.

Last year, 17 years after she vanished, there was a sign of hope. A tarp-covered car on the back of a flatbed truck arrived in Georgetown and was delivered to Williamson County detectives. The car, it is believed, could hold DNA clues about Cooke’s disappearance.

According to investigators, a white Trans Am that was recovered in Dallas may have been connected to several persons of interest, all part of a larger investigation that is still underway.
