HEARTWRENCHING video shows a huge emergency presence just 5 miles down the river from where missing mum Nicola Bulley disappeared.
The dog walker, 45, disappeared after dropping her children off at school in St Michael’s on Wyre, Lancashire, on Friday January 27.

Cops this week revealed their “main working hypothesis” was that Nicola had “sadly fallen” into the icy River Wyre.
And tonight locals spotted more than ten emergency vehicles on the Shard Bridge – five miles from where she vanished.
Cops confirmed they were called at 5.51pm today to the area in relation to the search for the missing mum.
Video shows police, the coastguard and ambulance workers all in attendance.
Their vehicles line the right hand of their bridge with their blue and white lights flashing.
Nearby residents also report that drones are currently scouring the area.
And drivers say the emergency workers were standing at the edge of the bridge.
However, Cops say nothing has been found.
A spokesperson for Lancashire Police told The Sun: “The search of the sand and surrounding area near to Shard Bridge by Lancashire Police and the Coastguard proved negative.”
It comes after Specialist Group International (SGI) today searched the water.
However, Peter Faulding, founder of SGI, has said their searches today were in vain – as nothing was discovered.
SGI had offered their services for free in a bid to give Nicola’s family answers and are using a helicopter to search for her.
They are also using a “top of the market” 18,000khz side scan sonar to search the 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.
