    in evidence

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
    *
    The night cop was nowhere in evidence.

    in evidence = be at hand, be present

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    Re: in evidence

    Yes - also '...was nowhere to be seen'.
