2Nicola Bulley and her partner Paul Ansell2Paul Ansell said he will never lose hope of finding NicolaSince then there has been no trace of the mum-of-two, leaving her family in agony.
And today her boyfriend of twelve years, Paul Ansell, told how much her kids are missing her.
In a new statement he said: “It’s been ten days now since Nicola went missing and I have two little girls who miss their mummy desperately and who need her back.
“This has been such a tough time for the girls especially but also for me and all of Nicola’s family and friends, as well as the wider community and I want to thank them for their love and support.
“We are also really grateful to Peter and his team from SGI for coming up and helping support the work of Lancashire Police as they continue their investigation.
“If anyone has any information which could help find Nicola, I urge them to get in touch with the police and help us provide the answers we all so badly need.”
Specialist Group International (SGI) today searched the water for the mum ten days after she vanished.
Lancashire Police believe Nicola, 45, fell into the river while walking her dog in St Michael’s on Wyre.
However, Peter Faulding, founder of SGI, has said their searches today were in vain – as nothing was discovered.
Speaking on TalkTV, he said: “After 25 years of doing this kind of work, after hundreds of cases, I am well and truly baffled.
“Normally you would expect the divers to find them easily.
“When people drown they generally go down where they are.
“We normally find them within five to ten metres of where they went down.
“This is the most baffling case that I have ever worked on.”
SGI has offered their services for free in a bid to give Nicola’s family answers and are using a helicopter to search for her.
