Police say ‘key witness’ in Nicola Bulley disappearance has come forward – live



Nicola Bulley’s partner Paul Ansell speaks out.

A woman described as a “key witness” by police searching for missing dog walker Nicola Bulley has come forward.

On Saturday officers said they wanted to trace a person seen pushing a pram in the area near where the dog walker went missing.

In an update on its Facebook page, Lancashire Police said the woman had come forward “very quickly” and is being treated as a witness.

On Friday police said that they believed the 45-year-old fell into the River Wyre while walking her dog nearby.


However, Ms Bulley’s sister, Louise Cunningham, has questioned the idea.

She urged the public to “keep an open mind” in a social media post on Friday evening, adding that there is “no evidence” her sister fell into the water.

In an interview with Sky News, Ms Bulley’s close friend Emma White disputed that a ball had been taken on the walk.

5 unanswered questions over missing dog walker mystery

The disappearance of Nicola Bulley has puzzled police since she was last seen on the morning of 27 January.

In a news conference held on 3 February, Lancashire Police stated that their main working hypothesis was that Ms Bulley “fell” into the river, and that the incident was “not suspicious”, but the “tragic case of a missing person.”

But Ms Bulley’s family contest that idea and as the mystery continues, we look at unanswered questions surrounding her disappearance.

Police reveal what Nicola Bulley was wearing before she vanished

Police have revealed the clothes Nicola Bulley was last seen wearing before she disappeared.

“I do have an update on the clothing that Nicola was last seen wearing, and this is something that the public who live in the area, or who walk their dogs on the river path near to St Michael’s or downstream of St Michael’s towards Morecambe Bay, can look out for,” Superintendent Sally Riley told Friday’s press conference.

“They are an ankle-length black quilted gilet jacket, a black Engelbert Strauss waist-length coat which was worn underneath the gilet, tight-fitting black jeans, long green walking socks tucked into her jeans, ankle-length green Next wellies, a necklace and a pale blue Fitbit.

“It’s really important that the public pay heed to those very specific clothing descriptions please, because factual sightings of those items would be very useful to us.”
