A press conference has been announced as the search for missing mother-of-two Nicola Bulley reaches its 19th day.
It is understood that Lancashire Police are keen to speak to the media in a bid to combat what they see as "misinformation" being spread about her mysterious disappearance.
Ms Bulley disappeared while walking her springer spaniel Willow in the village of St Michael’s on Wyre, Lancashire, after she dropped her two daughters – aged six and nine – at school on January 27.

At a press conference on February 3 the force first told the public of its “main working hypothesis” that the mortgage adviser fell in the river during a “10-minute window” between 9.10am and 9.20am that day.
The force has consistently maintained that her disappearance was not being treated as suspicious.
But the 45-year-old mortgage adviser's body has still not been found, and on February 3, detectives extended the search for her to the Irish Sea, saying finding her there “becomes more of a possibility”.
A 49-year-old man from Manchester and a 20-year-old woman from Oldham have been arrested on suspicion of malicious communications offences in relation to emails allegedly sent to Wyre Council members.

The man has been bailed pending further inquiries until May 12 while the woman remains in custody.
On Monday, Wyre Council was forced to remove councillors’ contact details from its website due to “inappropriate emails and phone calls” about Ms Bulley’s disappearance.
It said it had temporarily removed contact details for “parish and town council members” after Lancashire Police confirmed its investigation.
Meanwhile Ms Bulley’s friends and other well-wishers, including her next-door neighbour Charlotte Drake, have continued to flock to a bridge over the Wyre to lay yellow ribbons with messages which say they still hope she will be found safe and well.
Assistant Chief Constable Peter Lawson and Senior Investigating Officer Detective Superintendent Rebecca Smith will lead the conference.
