THE head of a specialist dive squad searching for Nicola Bulley said “something’s not right” in a police theory she fell in a river.
Specialist Group International (SGI) are currently scouring the water for the mum ten days after she vanished.

Peter Faulding, founder of SGI, said he is not convinced by the hypothesis.
He told the Mirror: “Normally people would scream out and I don’t know if there was other people in the area but you’d scream out, you’d flap around and the dog would normally maybe stay with the owner.
“There’s something, in my opinion, not quite right here.”

SGI have offered their services for free in a bid to give Nicola’s family answers.
They are using a “top of the market” 18,000khz side scan sonar to search the river.
Mr Faulding said: “If Nicola is here, I’m happy we will find her, if she’s in the river.
“If we can’t find her in the next three or four days in this river, if she’s not here, then I’m confident that she’s not in this stretch of river. I’d be very confident of that.

“We are going to be working our hardest, we’ll probably be working under darkness tonight for a while and that’s my intention to help the family.”
The missing mum’s friends have spoken of their hope at the specialist team giving her family some closure.
Pal Emma White told ITV’s Good Morning Britain: “We hope they uncover nothing, like the police have done for the last 10 days, and we hope Nicola is not in that river.”
Lancashire Police said previously their “main working hypothesis” is that Nicola had “sadly fallen in the river”.
Supt Sally Riley claimed there may have been an “issue” with dog Willow that led Nicola to the edge of the water.
Police believed the mum could have walked to the river to retrieve the dog’s tennis ball when she potentially fell in.
But Nicola’s sister Louise Cunningham and friend Emma have rubbished the hypothesis.
The pair explained there was “no evidence” that Nicola fell in the water while getting Willow’s tennis ball.
Supt Riley also later admitted there was also nothing to show a slip or fall near the bench where Nicola’s phone was found.
Anybody with information about where she might be is asked to call 101, quoting log 473 of January 27, or ring 999 for immediate sightings.
