Halifax police are asking the public for information about a taxi that was parked in the area where a missing university student was last seen more than a week ago.

Investigators say the cab was parked in a roundabout at the front entrance of an apartment building around 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 13.

Loretta Saunders was last seen that morning in the same area.

Sergeant Nancy Rudback says police are hoping to identify the taxi driver, who could be a potential witness in Saunders' disappearance.

The 26-year-old Inuit woman's car was found earlier this week near Windsor, Ont., and Halifax police issued arrest warrants for Blake Leggette, 25, and Victoria Henneberry, 28.

Ontario Provincial Police arrested Leggette and Henneberry.

On Friday they appeared in a Windsor court and were ordered held in custody for six days to give authorities from Nova Scotia time to bring them to Halifax.

Saunders' sister Delilah Terriak made an emotional public plea on Friday for information about her disappearance.
