Police divers have been pictured entering the River Wyre, close to where Nicola Bulley was last seen, after receiving a tip-off from a member of the public. The 45-year-old mortgage adviser has been missing for more than three weeks.
A picture taken today showed one diver in the water and another on the bank.
A helicopter was spotted hovering overhead.
A photographer at the scene told the Mirror: “It all happened so fast.
“Police have sealed all the roads off. It’s fair to say a massive search is underway.”
Police are understood to have sealed off a nearby road after receiving a call at about 11.50am.
Lancashire Police have said their “main hypothesis” is that the mother-of-two fell in the river.
Express.co.uk has contacted Lancashire Police for details.
