    In UK it is called Supporting Evidence if there is no proof to confirm it.

    It is called "evidence." No evidence is airtight or completely conclusive. I suspect that you are seeking the term " circumstantial" but that is not what circumstances substantial evidence is.

    Both of the previous answers are correct.

    Both "circumstantial evidence" and "supporting evidence" are terms used to describe such evidence.

    There are very slight differences in meaning between the two terms.

    Typically "circumstantial evidence" is used in legal contexts.
