    The mother of missing Claudia Lawrence says the disappearance of Nicola Bulley has left her feeling "stunned".

    Claudia, a chef who worked at York University, vanished in 2009.

    And her heartbroken mother Joan has told how the disappearance of Nicola last month "brought it all back".

    Joan told ITV news: "When it first came on the news I was very very upset. I cried my eyes out for the family, for me, for Claudia.

    "The similarities – it was very painful, it brought it all back."

    Joan added: "I have tried to get messages to the family to say if they want to contact me, to talk to me – especially the mum – that I understand exactly what they’re going through.

    "As the days have gone on, they won’t be eating, they won’t be sleeping."

    Nicola, 45, vanished a fortnight ago on January 27 in St Michael's on Wyre, Lancashire. The mum-of-two was walking her dog Willow at the time.

    Lancashire Police has said officers are keeping an "open mind" while continuing to appeal for information about the much-loved mother.

    Yesterday, we reported retired police officer Julie Mackay, who snared killer Christopher Hampton, had outlined the reason why she believes Lancashire Police are on the right track in the search.

    "I still believe she's gone in that river,” Mackay said. “When you look at the last two weeks and review it, nothing has changed.”

    The search for Nicola continues.
