Police have traced a dog walker who was seen near the spot where Nicola Bulley went missing.
Lancashire Police said the woman, who they wanted to speak to as a witness, was wearing a red and white coat with a fur hood, light-coloured trousers and a light bobble hat. She was walking a small, white dog.
The woman was also seen near the gate at the end of Allotment Lane.
The force said they want to speak to the woman as a witness and nothing more, and say there is nothing to suggest any third-party involvement in Ms Bulley’s disappearance.
She was last seen wearing a long black gilet jacket with a hood, black jeans and olive-green ankle wellies. Her hair was tied into a ponytail.
