San Luis Obispo police have released a photo of the mid-90s, red Chevy S-10 Blazer identified as a vehicle of interest in the Kristen Marti case.
Marti, whose body was discovered in late March in Prefumo Canyon, was last seen Jan. 9 sitting with an adult man in a parked car in the 1800 block of Prefumo Canyon Road, police say.
Police initially said the car Marti was last seen in was a maroon sedan, though they said March 29 that information about the sedan had been investigated "and is no longer of interest in this case."

Police also said last week that the case was being investigated as a homicide "based on the circumstances surrounding this investigation."
According to a Facebook profile in her name, Marti attended Morro Bay High School and lived in San Luis Obispo.
