The 45-year-old's mysterious disappearance remains a total enigma as it looks doubtful that she fell into the river.
Now entering its second week, the search for the missing woman remains ongoing with police officers and diving experts having so far failed to find a single piece of evidence to explain her disappearance.
The 45-year-old, who hails from Inskip in Lancashire, England, had dropped her children off at school on the morning of Friday, January 27th before heading out to take her dog for a walk.
She sent an e-mail to her boss at around 8:53am, then logged into a Microsoft Teams call at 9:01am which ended at 9:30am.
Concerns were quickly raised, however, when her phone was found abandoned on a bench near the River Wyre, still connected to the call.
Police officers had initially suggested that she had fallen in the river, but now a renewed search of the water by an expert diving team has found absolutely no trace of her whatsoever.
The search has now shifted further downstream to the bay where the river meets the sea.
Some experts have indicated that the river - being slow moving and relatively shallow - would be unlikely to have swept her all the way to the ocean and that if she had fallen in, she would have already been discovered.
"Extensive searching, you know, as you're probably aware, has gone on in that river," said Nicola's partner Paul Ansell.
"The fact that the divers and underwater rescue team and all that were in that river on the day, and thankfully found absolutely nothing, in the part where you would have to presume is her last known location."
"Personally, I am 100 per cent convinced it's not the river, that's my opinion."
