Claudia Lawrence was last seen leaving work on 18 March.
A TV appeal for information about missing chef Claudia Lawrence has led to some interesting calls about her previous relationships, police said.
Miss Lawrence, 35, was last seen on 18 March leaving the University of York's Goodricke College, where she worked.
Det Supt Ray Galloway said an appeal on BBC One's Crimewatch programme had so far generated 83 calls from the public.
"We have received some interesting calls, particularly about previous relationships," he said.
'Unhealthy interest'
Mr Galloway, who is leading the investigation by North Yorkshire Police, said: "What we also want to know is about more recent relationships and anyone who has shown an interest in Claudia lately.
"Who was Claudia going out with? Who was she seeing? Who was her boyfriend? Who was showing her maybe some unhealthy interest?"
He added that anyone who came forward would have their information treated in "absolute confidence".
The programme was told how the inquiry was the biggest police investigation in North Yorkshire for five years.

Copies of her mobile phone and bag were shown on the programme.
Copies of Miss Lawrence's rucksack and mobile phone, which are both also missing, were shown on the show.
One caller reported a possible sighting of Miss Lawrence's rucksack, and names were given of people who could know her whereabouts.
On Monday, police advised members of the public not to make donations to the Claudia Lawrence Appeal website.
Detectives said it was not connected in any way to North Yorkshire Police or Miss Lawrence's family.
On Tuesday police said the website had been shut down.
A spokesman said: "Inquiries are ongoing to see if any offences have been committed. At this time no arrests have been made."
Miss Lawrence disappeared without taking any money, bank cards, or her passport, police said.
Friends and family have described her disappearance as "totally out of character".
She is described as white, 5ft 6ins, slim with brown hair and brown eyes.
She was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue skinny jeans and white trainers.
