Her body has not been found, but police say her car - a black BMW one series - was located by officers in Luton. 

Roger Cooper, aged 40, of Tile Hurst Drive, Coventry and David Cooper, aged 38, of Hughenden Drive, Leicester were charged with her murder by officers on January 9.

Detective Superintendent Mark Payne is leading the investigation into Sameena’s disappearance. He said: “This is a significant development in our inquiry and our thoughts are with Sameena’s family and friends at this time.

“Our investigation is still very much ongoing and I would like to thank all those who have called with information so far to help find Sameena.
