While Lancashire Police, which is investigating the 45-year-old’s disappearance with the assistance of the National Crime Agency, did not confirm whether it was looking into the red van, it said it was looking into all leads.
A spokesperson for the force told The Sun: "We have received a huge amount of information into the enquiry, all of which is being looked at, and we are extremely grateful to everyone who has assisted our investigation so far".
The latest lead in the case of Nicola’s disappearance comes after police were forced to issue a warning against trolls and amateur detectives who were disrupting the official investigation.
A spokesperson previously said: "We hope that will give people some reassurance that we will not tolerate criminality, including trespass and criminal damage.
"We are also aware of a number of grossly offensive comments being made on social media and elsewhere.

Nicola Bulley, a mortgage advisor from Inskip in Lancashire, disappeared on the morning of January 27 after dropping her two kids off to school.
She disappeared while taking a video-call meeting while walking her dog, Willow, along the River Wyre in the town of St. Michael’s.
Willow was found near a bench where Nicola’s phone, which was still connected to the call, was left.
The head of a team of specialist divers who looked through the stretch of river where she is believed to have fallen into said that he had never seen a case “so unusual” in his 20-year career.
