A body was sadly found after an underwater search squad and specialized police officers arrived on the scene, entered the water, and searched the area.
“We cannot yet confirm whether this is Nicola Bulley because no official identification has been made.
“The process of identifying the body is still continuing. The cause of the death is presently being investigated.
“The family of Nicola has been updated on the situation, and during this extremely trying time, our prayers are with them. We request that their anonymity be upheld.”
