Armchair detectives, "persistent misconceptions," and police criticism but no Britain mom.

February 18, 2023



(CNN) βΈ» Nicola Bulley, a 45-year-old mother of two, went missing in the River Wyre in northern England on January 27. Three weeks later, her dog was found wandering alone and her phone was still logged into a group work call. Despite reviewing hundreds of hours of CCTV and dashcam footage, and investigating tip-offs from the public, police officers have insisted that there is still no evidence to indicate third-party involvement and their main working hypothesis remains that she fell into the river. The case has baffled the public and attracted widespread media attention, with police also revealing that Bulley had been struggling with alcohol issues and menopause at the time of her disappearance. This week, investigators sharply criticized members of the public for peddling "persistent myths" and distracting their search for the missing mother of two. The police have been criticized for their handling of the case, particularly for revealing personal details about Bulley, such as her alcohol problems and menopause struggles. The hashtag "menopause" was trending on Twitter in the wake of the police announcements, with some social media users accusing Lancashire Police of letting women down. At least 16 women have been killed by serving or retired police officers over the last 13 years in the UK, according to the Femicide Census. Campaigners feel that tackling gender-based violence is not a police priority. Dr Charlotte Proudman and Sue McKay criticised Lancs Police for describing Nicola Bulley as a menopausal woman with drink issues, while Professor Wilson worried that their clarification was made to protect their institutional reputation. Bulley's family called for an end to the speculation. Lancashire Police released a statement with personal details about Nikki Bulley, leading to criticism of the police. British Home Secretary Suella Braverman raised concerns with police over its handling of the case, and the Home Secretary and Policing Minister are receiving regular updates from Lancashire Police. Three weeks later, there is still no trace of Bulley. Nicola Bulley, a White, middle class, professional woman from a picture-perfect village, went missing while on a work conference call. Her dog Willow was found wandering alone and her phone was recovered on a riverside bench, but Bulley had vanished. Police are focusing on the time between the phone being placed on the bench at 9:20 a.m. and the device being recovered 10 minutes later. Her partner of 12 years, Paul Ansell, described the situation as a "perpetual hell." Bulley's case has captivated the general public.
