    Police hunting for missing Nicola Bulley are now reportedly investigating the woman's Fitbit smartwatch after it was activated four days after she disappeared.

    The 45-year-old mum-of-two was walking her dog when she went missing on Friday, January 27, near the River Wyre in Lancashire.

    She had dropped her children off at school that morning before taking the family pup, Willow, on a walk.

    Ms Bulley, whose phone was found at the scene of her disappearance and logged into a work conference, is now believed to have approached the river.

    Superintendent Riley, who said police are "as sure as can be" that the mum-of-two did not leave the area, said the 45-year-old "may have fallen in" the river while walking the dog.

    However, it is now being reported that the woman's Fitbit device was last synced on Tuesday – four days after she went missing.

    The claim comes from friend Emma White, who told The Sun: “The Fitbit had not been synced since Tuesday.

    “The police are trying other ways to try to get information from it.”

    It is not known how Ms White knows about the device syncing.

    The Fitbit is missing, but it is possible to see when it was last synced using the app on a phone – Nicola's phone was still logged into a conference call when it was found, but it is not known whether or not it was unlocked at the time.

    Bluetooth connections can work up to around 100ft away, so it is assumed that the watch was that distance away from the phone four days after Nicola went missing.

    Police did confirm they had “no info to give out on the Fitbit” when asked about it earlier this week.

    The last official statement from the police came on Friday (February 3).

    Supt Sally Riley said yesterday: “It’s now a week since Nicola went missing and her disappearance has understandably caused a huge amount of concern and upset in the local community, as well as being an absolutely awful time for her family.

    "As a mum I can’t begin to imagine the suffering they are going through. We are supporting them as best we can and keeping them updated on our efforts to try and find Nicola.

    “We have done a huge amount of work both in terms of searches of the area as well as extensive enquiries which have been going on behind the scenes and based on that work we are as sure as we can be that Nicola has not left the area where she was last seen and that very sadly for some reason she has fallen into the water.

    “There is absolutely nothing to suggest from all the extensive enquiries we have made that anything untoward has happened to her or that there is any third-party involvement in her disappearance.”

    The search continues.
