COPS have revealed they are still probing an “incident” that saw police be called to her home just weeks before she vanished.
The dog walker, 45, disappeared after dropping her children off at school in St Michael's on Wyre, Lancashire, on Friday January 27.
Since then there has been no trace of the mum-of-two, leaving her family in agony despite extensive searches.
But detectives yesterday gave further insight into their colossal investigation into her disappearance.
In a statement on February 15, cops revealed that she had been classed as a "high risk" missing person due to "vulnerabilities" identified by her partner.
They added that revealing these "vulnerabilities" were an "unusual" but necessary step.

This means that there was a "real and immediate" danger to the safety of either Nicola or the public.
Police later went even further – and revealed that they were called to Nicola Bulley's family home just weeks before she went missing.
And they say they are still probing the “incident”.
A statement read: “Sadly, it is clear from speaking to Paul and the family that Nicola had in the past suffered with some significant issues with alcohol which were brought on by her ongoing struggles with the menopause and that these struggles had resurfaced over recent months.

“This caused some real challenges for Paul and the family.
“As a result of those issues, a response car staffed by both police and health professionals attended a report of concern for welfare at Nicola’s home address on January 10.
“No one has been arrested in relation to this incident, but it is being investigated.”
Brits have slammed the police as “disgusting and misogynistic” for revealing the sensitive and private information.
One wrote: “Police have given the information about Mrs Nicola Bulley's lifestyle and really cops should not have put it out there!
“That she had an issue with the alcohol and that for sure! Disgusting of the police to say that alcohol was misused!”
Another fumed: “Why do I need to know that a missing woman had difficulty with alcohol and symptoms related to the menopause? Highly personal details.”
