Other ghouls have been snapping themselves next to posters featuring the dog walker, 45, who police fear fell into the River Wyre in Lancashire after taking her kids to school.

Detectives have admitted there is a “possibility” that Nicola may have left the riverside path where she was last seen with "someone".
Officers maintain that the most likely explanation for Nicola's disappearance is that she fell into the River Wyre while walking her dog.
