Nicola Bulley cops help search for Gaynor Lord as focus turns to 33-minute visit

Police officers looking for missing Gaynor Lord are trying to piece together a half-hour window when it’s thought she was at Norwich Cathedral shortly before she was seen for the last time.

As police continue their efforts to build a picture of Gaynor’s movements last Friday (December 8), attention is focusing on the 33 minutes when she was probably in or around the cathedral.

Gaynor left work at a department store in Norwich at 2.45pm and was caught on camera walking around the city centre before heading towards the cathedral. She wasn’t picked up again on CCTV until 3.22pm, when she was filmed leaving the cathedral’s precincts.

The last image of the mum-of-three caught on tape was at 4.01pm, and she never made it home. Her clothes were found in the city’s Wensum Park, and detectives believe that the most likely scenario is that she “entered the water”.

There’s a huge police operation under way in the search for Gaynor. Divers have been brought in from neighbouring Lincolnshire and it’s also emerged that officers are talking to the force which investigated the death of Nicola Bulley earlier this year.

But police can’t access Gaynor’s mobile phone, which makes it even more important for them to piece together all her movements – and it’s possible that someone who was at the cathedral that day has some key information.

Supt Wes Hornigold said: “We are particularly keen on hearing from anyone who may have seen Gaynor in the cathedral grounds which she enters at 2.50pm and leaves at 3.23pm.

“It’s not clear where she goes inside the cathedral grounds during this time so we’re keen to hear from anyone who may have seen her there.”

He told The Sun: “The cathedral is currently a focus for us. There’s lots of work we are doing there to establish what happened in the gap in CCTV. We are working with people in the cathedral to try and understand what happened.”

Supt Hornigold also confirmed the contact with police who helped in the search for tragic Nicola, and said Norfolk detectives “have been linking in with Lancashire Constabulary to understand any of the lessons learned” from that investigation.

He told LBC: ”We’ve already had meetings with the National Crime Agency in terms of understanding any specific skills and knowledge in respect to water searching.

“We’re cognisant of the recent College of Policing report into the Lancashire inquiry, so we’re leaving no stone unturned and making sure we’re doing everything within our power to find Gaynor as quickly as possible.”
