Her friend, Emma White set up a fundraiser on GoFundMe to help Nicola’s family in the tough times but later took it down after receiving flak on social media. Initially, the fundraiser sought to raise around £100,000 but later changed it to £50,000 and finally £5000 before deleting the post altogether on 7th February 2023.

After deleting the Emma shared a post on Facebook apologizing for creating a fundraiser without getting permission from Nicola’s family and added that the money donated will be refunded to the donors by GoFundMe.
“We have been asked by friends for a page for donations, the family was unaware. I got help to set this up, hence the husband’s comment and the £. I have since removed and can only apologise to anyone,” Emma wrote.

In a press conference on 15th February 2023, Lancashire Police stated that they did not find any evidence of a criminal aspect or third-party involvement in the disappearance of Ms Bulley and they suspect that she might have fallen into the River Wyre. A police spokesman said,
Sadly, it is clear from speaking to Paul and the family that Nicola had in the past suffered with some significant issues with alcohol which were brought on by her ongoing struggles with the menopause and that these struggles had resurfaced over recent months. This caused some real challenges for Paul and the family.

The police came under fire and have been criticized heavily on social media for making Ms Bulley’s struggles with alcohol and peri-menopause public. 3
On 19 February at around 11:35 am, the police were notified by a couple that they found a body in the river while walking their dog. The body was found just a mile away from where Bulley was last seen walking her dog. The next day, Police confirmed that the body found in the River Wyre on Sunday is Nicola Bulley.

“Sadly we are now able to confirm that yesterday we recovered Nicola Bulley from the River Wyre. Nicola’s family have been informed and are of course devastated. Our thoughts are with them at this time, as well as with all her loved ones and the wider community.”, a senior officer said. 4
