Nicola Bulley: 27 scenes recall the search in St Michael's and the River Wyre for missing Lancashire mum

For three weeks police and underwater search teams combed the banks of the River Wyre in their desperate search for Nicola Bulley.

She seemed to disappear without trace and as days turned into weeks and the investigation offered no firm leads, it became a major and desperate search to find out what had happened to her.

As an independent review is released into the investigation, we look back in pictures to recall those weeks. We focus on the police activity, the sight of underwater search teams looking for Nicola, the messages of hope pinned to the bridge over the river and the media which followed the investigation as it unfolded.
