Nicola Bulley: ‘Key witness’ comes forward after police appeal

Emma White, a friend of Ms Bulley, claimed police are trying to locate her last known movements from data on her Fitbit exercise tracker.

She told the Mail on Sunday: “The watch can receive data, but cannot connect to the internet. However, we hope they can somehow locate it using Bluetooth signals from people’s phones. We are clinging to hope.”

She added that  the Fitbit has not “synced” with its servers since the Tuesday before Nicola’s disappearance. 

Superintendent Sally Riley of Lancashire Police said inquiries so far had left a 10-minute window in which they cannot account for Ms Bulley’s movements.

Ms Riley said: “We remain open to any inquiries that might lead us to question that, but at this time we understand that she was by the river.

“Our main working hypothesis, therefore, is that Nicola has sadly fallen into the river, that there is no third-party or criminal involvement and that this is not suspicious, but a tragic case of a missing person.

“This is particularly important because speculation otherwise can be really distressing for the family and for Nicola’s children.”
