Nicola Bulleys partner pays emotional visit to riverbank where she went missing

Nicola Bulley's partner has made an emotional visit to the riverbank where the missing mum-of-two was last seen as dive experts continue their search.

Paul Ansell, the partner of the 45-year-old who has been missing since Friday, January 27, was seen at the riverbank as he spoke with those leading the search for Nicola.

Nicola was last seen in St Michael's on Wyre, Lancashire, with her phone found on a bench near the riverbank that marked her last sighting 12 days ago.

Mr Ansell has since made a visit to the spot to meet with expert divers and police investigators who are using sonar to search deep into the river for any trace of the mum.

Paul was seen speaking with diving expert Peter Faulding, who is leading the search into Nicola's disappearance, as well as a friend of Nicola and a detective.

Expert Faulding, who previously said he "can't get my head around" how police investigations have so far "found nothing", is believed to have told Mr Ansell "she's not here".

The dive expert has made a number of claims since entering the investigation, as Lancashire Police confirmed they are keeping an "open mind" as investigations continue.

Police have warned members of the public not to "take the law into their own hands" over concerns that people have been breaking into properties to become amateur sleuths.

Further comments from an unnamed friend of the family have seen "attention seeking" armchair detectives slammed as being "cruel and unhelpful" while they hit out psychics having their say on Nicola's disappearance.

The friend was reported by Daily Star as saying of one psychic: "It has been well documented what she was wearing. I think this is very distressing for friends and family to read.

"Has she taken her information to the police? Is she willing to travel to the area and show the police where these marks are because they have not found anything?

"Other psychics have said she is in the water clinging on to branches. Why are they all seeing differently? They are not all right."
