Missing dog walker husband, Paul Ansell, spoke about his wife’s disappearance publically for the first time ever.
Ansell had previously criticized the police’s approach and said he did not believe his wife, Nicola Bulley, had fallen in the river. The husband is not fully satisfied with the investigation.
He further added that people couldn’t vanish in the air. It seems impossible that something might have happened to her.
Her partner, Paul Ansell, expressed his belief that someone in the village must have information about her disappearance.
Ansell suggested that whoever is responsible for her disappearance likely knows the local area well, as he and his wife had taken the same walk for years and were familiar with many of the people they encountered along the way.
Ansell became emotional as he discussed his wife’s disappearance, stating that people do not simply vanish without a trace and that he believed something must have happened to her.
He pleaded for a more extensive search effort, calling for every house, garage, outbuilding, and piece of land to be scrutinized and searched.
Ansell’s sole focus was finding his partner and learning the truth about her disappearance.
What happened to Nicola Bulley?
Nicola Bulley, a 45-year-old, went missing from Inskip, Lancashire, on the morning of Friday, 27 January, after dropping off her two daughters, aged six and nine, at school and taking her dog for a walk.
Despite nearly three weeks of searching, police have been unable to locate her.
Nicola, a mother of two, had dropped her daughters off at school before she went missing. Her phone was still connected to a work call on a nearby park bench, along with the harness and lead for her dog.
Her last message was an email to her boss and a text to a friend shortly before she joined the work call.
She had been classified as a “high-risk” missing person due to issues with alcohol and personal vulnerabilities.
Lancashire constabulary has stated that they believe she may have fallen into the river while walking her dog, though there is no evidence of a crime being committed.
The search for Bulley has involved significant resources, including trained counter-terrorist officers, fire and rescue dogs, and mountain rescue volunteers. Her family and friends remain hopeful that she will be found.
The authorities added: “I think it’s clear to see that the amount of effort, hours worked, resources that we’ve put into this investigation, that we have always been open minded.”
