In an interview on Channel 5, Mr Ansell said with Dan Walker: “Whatever I think happened must be someone who knows the area, who knows it. And the fact that nothing was seen or heard, I really think it’s something in the village.”

Mr Ansell explained that he and his wife had taken the same walk for years. “And you see the same faces every day, and on that very odd occasion when you see someone you know, you who you don’t know, them, they stick out like a sore thumb.”

Mr Ansell also got emotional while discussing his wife’s disappearance.

“It’s horrifying because you guys don’t just vanish into thin air. It’s absolutely impossible. So something happened.”

He further begged to intensify the search for his partner.

“My plea now is personal, I want every house, every garage, every outbuilding, the land to be looked at. I want everything to be searched. I want everything to be scrutinized, every bit of it. And me, you won’t appease me with anything else. That, that’s what I want.”

Local people lined the street in St Michael’s on Wyre with banners showing Ms Bulley’s face and pleas for help.

“It’s a pretty important part of the village, so people would remember walking past it. Did you see anything?”

“We have banners, we have posters with Nikki’s face on them, we have a moving eight-foot LED board with her face on it and the words ‘Bring Nikki home’.”

Ms White added: “It’s just a rollercoaster ride, it’s almost like torture – the desperation, the unimaginable frustration in the sense that everyone has come together and worked so hard: the police, the community, the local people.”

“You expect to be rewarded for your hard work, so all we need is something, anything, some information that can lead us to another investigation.”
