'Psychic' claims he found body during Nicola Bulley search before helping cops to recover tragic find | The Sun
A PSYCHIC has claimed he found the body believed to be missing mum Nicola Bulley.
Jason Rothwell, 33, claims he helped police recover the remains from the river Wyre less than a mile away from where the missing mum was last seen.
He was pictured yesterday pointing towards the reeds where he made the discovery, Mail Online reports.
The spiritual medium said: “As has obviously become apparent, yes it is myself in the images in the media currently circulating relating to the case of Nicola Bulley and yes yesterday morning it was myself and a friend who reported and assisted the police in the recovery of a body from the river Wyre.
“Such as it is it would be inappropriate of me to discuss in any further detail anything we may know about that body at this time, considering a formal identification of that body has yet to be confirmed.
“I would also like to just say a huge thank you to Lancashire police for their help, support and the open mindedness with which they dealt with us, following our call, spiritualists or mediums are obviously not something the police come across every day and I appreciate the respect given to us both.

“It is also important to mention, I was not asked by the police or Nicola’s family to become involved in this case, but having seen the wild speculation and hurtful commentary that has been ongoing, and having previously assisted in the recovery of Michael Brooks, I decided to use what ever “gift” it is we mediums possess to try and locate Nicola Bulley.
"I Would however stress again, I can not confirm that body we traced yesterday is that off the lady in question.
“My thoughts and prayers are with her family, friend and loved ones at this time and I do hope, that if it is indeed Nicola, they can find some peace with this.
"If it is not, I would send my prayers to the family off whomsoever it may be.
