Nicola Bulley – latest: Diver who searched for missing mother ‘removed from crime expert list’
The private specialist who aided in the search for Nicola Bulley has been removed from the National Crime Agency’s list of experts.
Peter Faulding led a team of experts and divers to assist Lancashire Police in searching the river using specialist sonar equipment.
Their search took two and a half days, scanning a three-mile stretch of the river between St Michael’s and Cartford Bridge, but did not yield any results.
Nicola Bulley was sadly pulled from the River Wyre last Sunday after members of the public alerted police to a suspected body, over three weeks after she was last sighted on 27 January.
The Specialist Group International (SGI) has been suspended this week whilst a review is conducted.
Throughout the investigation, Mr Faulding did not believe that she was in the water.
Meanwhile, a mural has been painted in memory of Nicola Bulley in her hometown as the family prepares for her funeral.
Almost 250 people gathered in the centre of South Woodham Ferrers, Essex on Thursday evening for a candlelit vigil. On Wednesday, local artist Danny Bench finalised a moving mural dedicated to Nicola on Hullbridge Road.
