The concerned couple of missing mother Nicola Bulley were left “frustrated” by the police operation, according to reports. Paul Ansell is said to be “frustrated” and “appalled” by the Lancashire Police investigation.
Mr Faulding told MailOnline: “He has a relationship with the police family liaison officers but I think he is struggling to get the answers he wants. He has a line of communication with them but I think there is a problem. He expressed his frustrations to the family liaison officers last week in front of me when I was there.”
Faulding said Ansell wanted to issue a joint statement with police but was “absolutely shocked” when he didn’t hear back from them. The expert added that Ansell is “lost” without his partner: “Paul is just lost, really. He doesn’t have a partner, the kids miss their mom… He’s in pieces. Absolutely in pieces. He just wants to know where he is. Nicola”. is.”

In his latest statement issued through police, Paul said: “It’s been 10 days since Nicola went missing and I have two little girls who desperately miss their mum and need her back. This has been a very difficult time for the girls especially, but also to myself and all of Nicola’s family and friends, as well as the community at large and I want to thank you for your love and support.”
The partner then sat down with Dan Walker for a Channel 5 television interview on Friday. In his statement last week, the partner of missing dog walker Nicola continued: “We are also very grateful to Peter and his team at SGI for coming out and helping support the work of Lancashire Police as they continue their investigation.
“If anyone has any information that could help find Nicola, I urge you to contact the police and help us provide much-needed answers.” After a search and dive by Mr Faulding yielded no results, the expert told reporters: “Well, Paul is extremely upset, he wanted to go and see where the original entry point was again, and the water is a bit lower than it was originally when Nicholas disappeared.
“And he’s, it’s clear to him that, well, the whole family is clearly distraught as anyone will be. And it’s just not a good place to be. And I’m just trying to explain what work we’re doing. And give him some confidence that that Nicola is not in that river over there, we usually find them, this is an unusual situation.
“And hopefully Nicola will show up somewhere or show up somewhere, I don’t know. But with that, I’m, I’m totally baffled by this, to be honest. Normally, a drowning victim goes to the bottom. There was a little flow in the river that day. But normally we recover them after a few meters”.
