A missing persons expert has claimed that missing mother-of-two Nicola Bulley could have gone “off-grid”.
Charlie Hedges, who has four decades of experience searching for adults and children, said he thinks “we need to keep our minds open to all options”, as the search for the dog walker entered its fourth week.
“Nobody goes missing without a reason, and understanding what’s going on in someone’s life is really really important. And all lines of action need to be followed,” he told GB News.
“It may be just that she just took the decision to go off, but it’s not that easy to go off-grid in today’s world.”
It comes as criticism mounts over Lancashire Police’s handling of the investigation, after the force this week revealed Ms Bulley had “significant” issues with alcohol brought on by her struggle with menopause.
Rishi Sunak has since expressed concern over the force’s decision to disclose information about her personal life.
