Despite extensive searches there has been no trace of the mum-of-two, leaving her family in agony.
Nicola’s family today broke their silence and issued a statement throug police – begging for the public to “focus on finding her”.
In the family statement, they said: “The police know the truth about Nikki and now the public need to focus on finding her.”
The family explained: “Due to the peri menopause Nikki suffered with significant side effects such as brain fog, restless sleep and was taking HRT to help but this was giving her intense headaches which caused Nikki to stop taking the HRT thinking that may have helped her but only ended up causing this crisis.”
Yesterday cops said the mum-of-two had “significant issues with alcohol” as a result of menopause.
They also revealed they’d been called to the family’s home after “a report of concern for welfare” just weeks before Nicola vanished.
Cops came under fire for sharing such personal details.
But Nicola’s family said they had known beforehand that the police were going to reveal more about Nicola.
The statement read: “As a family, we were aware that Lancashire Police, last night, released a statement with some personal details.
“Although we know that Nikki would not have wanted this, there are people out there speculating.”
And in a heartbreaking plea, the family called Nikki a “wonderful daughter, sister, partner and mother”.
It comes as…
The family also begged the mum-of-two to come home to her daughters for a “cuddle”.
They said: “Nikki, we hope you are reading this and know that we love you so much and your girls want a cuddle.
“We all need you home.”
It comes after cops have been slammed by many for “destroying” the mum’s reputation.
Pals of Nicola have shared their fury, too.
