COPS searching for Nicola Bulley were handed a mystery “stained” glove found in the field where the mother of two was last seen, it emerged tonight.
In a dramatic twist, the blue ski glove was taken away in an evidence bag last week despite police still maintaining Nicola, 45, was swept away in a river.

The police theory she fell into the Wyre in a tragic accident has been questioned by relatives who say there is no evidence of that.
Lancashire Police confirmed that their controversial river hypothesis had not changed on February 7 — the same day that two walkers stumbled upon the glove.
It was yards from where Nicola was last seen, and close to where her mobile phone was left on a bench.
The glove was bagged and handed to police.
A video of the discovery was posted live on TikTok but has since been deleted.
The person who shared the footage also referred to the covering being stained but it was unclear with what.

One woman commented online: “Has anyone heard anything about the glove that was found in the early hours on the field she was last seen on the TikTok live?
“I was watching it live about 1am. A couple went on to the field last night, found a glove there with a stain on it?
“They reported it to the police and bagged it and gave it to an officer.”
Yellow ribbons adorn the bridge at St Michael’s, where villagers are longing for Nicola’s return.
Yesterday singer Peter Andre, 49, called her disappearance a “bizarre story” with “more questions than answers”.
He said he “can’t imagine” what her distraught relatives are going through as they wait for news.
