The partner of missing mum Nicola Bulley says her disappearance is ‘like a dream’.

Paul Ansell told Sky News: ’It seems absolutely impossible. it’s like a dream, I can’t get my head around it.

‘I don’t really have anything to say other than what the family said yesterday, my whole focus is my two girls and staying as strong as I can for them.

‘I’m scared that if I put focus into anything else it’s going to take my focus off that.’

Paul added he ‘doesn’t know how he’s coping.’

Nicola had been walking near the River Wyre in St Michael’s on Wyre, Lancashire at a similar time to when Nicola vanished on January 27.

The mortgage advisor had just dropped off her daughters, aged six and nine, at the local school in the village.

Her parents yesterday described how she was in good spirits during their last conversation and spoken of their ‘dread’ at the thought of never seeing her again.

Ernest and Dot Bulley said their grandchildren were ‘sobbing their hearts out’ after being told ‘mummy is lost’.

The last known movements of Nicola before she went missing were released by police last night as they still continue their search for mum-of-two.
