Nicola Bulley expert Peter Faulding reveals list of dump sites where you could park car & bury body without being seen | The Sun
A SEARCH expert who was drafted in to help find missing mum Nicola Bulley is hunting for sites where someone could bury a body without being seen.
Peter Faulding has compiled a list of ditches, woodlands and hedgerows close to where the 45-year-old vanished after her partner pleaded for nearby land to be "scrutinised".
Faulding, who has worked on a series of high-profile missing person cases, told The Times: "I’m looking at Ordnance Survey maps of the surrounding areas to search for possible deposition sites.
"These could be ditches, hedgerows, wooded areas where it is possible to park a vehicle and deposit a body without being seen.
"People in the wider vicinity for several miles around St Michael’s should be looking for any suspicious activity."
Nicola was last seen walking her dog along the river in St Michael's on Wyre, Lancashire, at 9.10am on January 27.

She was reported missing after her phone, which was still connected to a work call, was found on a bench overlooking the water.
Police quickly said they suspected she had fallen in and launched an extensive search of the River Wyre.
But 18 days later and there is still no sign of the mortgage adviser, leading her family, friends and Faulding to believe a third party may be involved.
Her partner Paul Ansell said in an interview with Channel 5: "You cannot walk your dog down a river and just vanish into thin air. Something happened that day."

Her pal Charlotte Drake, who has lived next door to the couple for five years, added: "My gut feeling remains the same. I honestly believe Nikki is not in the water."
Some land searches have taken place. Officers were yesterday seen scouring a caravan site just yards from where her phone and Springer Spaniel Willow were discovered near the towpath.
But most of the investigation has focused on the river, other connecting waterways and Morecambe Bay.
On Friday, Paul desperately urged cops to ramp up their searches on land as he is "100 per cent" sure she's not in the water.
"My plea now is, personally, I want every house, every garage, every outbuilding, the land, scrutinised," he told Channel 5's Dan Walker.
"I want it all searched, I want it all scrutinised, every piece of it."
After a "frank" conversation with Faulding, he agreed that the forensic expert should begin his search for possible burial locations.
Faulding, who plans to probe the land around the village next week if Nicola isn't found before then, told Jeremy Kyle on TalkTV: "Surrounding land should have been searched thoroughly straight away.
"There needs to be a lot more done. Land needs to be searched now."
He said, from experience, people are usually found within a couple of miles from where they disappeared.
