The search for missing mum-of-two Nicola Bulley has reached a new stage as police are reportedly investigating who had permits to fish in the river detectives believe she fell into.
Mum of two, Nicola, 45, disappeared without a trace during a dog walk along the River Wyre in the village of St Michael’s, Lancs, on January 27, with the police’s operating theory being that she fell into the river – with no criminal involvement.
But it has now emerged that local fishing clubs have been approached by officers looking for information about who was ticketed to be on the river around the time of her disappearance.
The latest development comes just days after a report from a potential witness, who claims to have seen two men acting suspiciously on the river both the day before and on the morning Nicola disappeared.
