A woman and her dog were walking along a riverbank 14 days ago, and moments later, her dog was running and she was nowhere to be seen. Where has she gone? That is a mystery to be solved by the authorities and the family members. The girl named Nicola Bulley is a 45-year-old mortgage adviser. But she is in the headlines for a different cause.
According to near relatives and family members, Nicola Bulley, 45, went on walking alongside her dog a few days ago in a northwestern Lancashire village. When the woman did not return with her dog, the family members called the police and informed them about the accident.
What are the police’s views?
According to police sources, Bulley fell into the river, which they call an accident. Additionally, they believe that there has not been any third party involved in the accident. However, many believe this is not the case because the evidence presented alongside the river does not support the hypothesis. There is a towpath that runs alongside a steep riverbank, but there have not been any footprints or scuffs in the mud. This suggests that Bulley has not fallen into the river.
What is her family members’ view?
According to Bulley’s father, she has not fallen into the river but rather has been abducted by a third party. According to him, the police hypothesis that she fell into the river is a complete lie. It is because there is not any evidence to support the claim. Bulley’s sister, Louise Cunningham, fears that her sister must be somewhere and that someone must know about her. To quote her, “Somebody must know something.” People don’t just vanish into thin air.
What about the search?
The authorities have started an investigation and are searching for the woman. First, a team of police was asked to search for the woman in the river. But the team did not find any clue. Then a few days later, a team of underwater rescuers joined the authorities to look for the woman. However, they too failed to provide any clue about her whereabouts.
When things turned ugly, the authorities asked the forensic team, which has international experience. The group has a high-tech sonar that is used to search riverbeds. According to forensic expert Peter Faulding, they are trying to look for signs inside the river with the help of high-tech sonar. Faulding believes that the sonar can see “every stick and stone lying on the riverbed.” He told the reporters that with the help of this technology, the police claim could be confirmed or denied. Despite all these attempts, there has been no progress regarding the whereabouts of Bulley.
The phone and the dog
Near a bench where she was last seen, a phone, the dog’s lead, and its harness were discovered. Pictures of the dog, from the fitness app Strava reveal that when the dog went outside, it typically wore a harness. The police then stated that they thought Nicola taking off the harness when walking the dog was common practice.
Police were investigating a van suspected of abducting Nicola Bulley. But later stated that the vehicle had no relationship with Bulley’s disappearance, so it was released.
There is uncertainty and distress everywhere. Especially with her family members and friends being more stressed and uncertain. There are dozens of questions buzzing in everyone’s mind, even the minds of the police. But these questions are very hard to answer because each answer is not backed by evidence.
It is very hard for the family members and friends to digest the fact that Bulley is no longer with them. It will take substantial pieces of evidence to make them believe that there has not been any third party involved in Bulley’s disappearance. Nicola Bulley’s friend Emma White told the BBC that, “following the hypothesis of the police that Nicola was in the river, we need some evidence to back that up either way.” Additionally, family members are more concerned about Bulley’s two young children; her father said that “there are two young children there waiting for their mommy to come back.”
Turmoil after woman disappearance
Nicola Bulley used to share her thoughts about the place where she used to go for a walk and where she has now disappeared. A few days ago, she wrote about this place on her Facebook page, writing that the walk was “very foggy” and the place is “spooky.”
Her family and friends are in turmoil as a result of Nicola Bulley’s disappearance as they try to cope with the unexpected loss of a loved one. There isn’t enough evidence to back up the police claim that she might have fallen into the river, leaving many questions unanswered. A professional underwater rescue crew has joined the ongoing search for Nicola. The results of the search are still being investigated, and the family is left wondering what happened to Nicola.
The incident has also sparked questions about the security of remote rural locations, as well as the need for more awareness and safety measures. The hope is that Nicola will be found safe and sound while the hunt for her continues. The family and friends of Nicola Bulley can only wait for clarification and hold out hope in the interim.
Some statistics about missing persons
This is not the first time someone has vanished into thin air. According to the International Commission on Missing Persons, more than 1 million people have mysteriously disappeared in America alone. Most of them have been declared dead in absentia. Among these missing persons, 60% are adults and 40% are children. Additionally, an estimated 275,000 Britons go missing each year in the UK, according to a 2009 estimate. Due to the high percentage of unreported missing people, the frequency of missing people in some nations, like Japan, does not match the data that is currently available.
