"I didn't know my Auntie but the whole family keep her memory alive, telling me that she was a tom-boy and how much family meant to her. At school people would see the news and say how lovely she seemed, those comments make me cherish my family even more"
"I remember sitting in class with her and seeing how many different ways she would write her name...Nicola, Nicky, Nicki, Nikkie, Nikki..."
"Nicki was a beautiful person inside and out, always smiling, always joking around and she will never be forgotten"
"Her disappearance has made such a widespread impact from that foggy Saturday until now. Her family deserve closure after all this time"
"I saw Nic about 2 weeks before Owen was due and she told me she was so excited about becoming a mummy"
"Nikki became a little sister to me, she would pop in for me to plait her hair or to see her niece & nephew, she was a great help with the kids and in the paddling pool at Coombe Abbey on a Sunday afternoon when we forgot to take towels we would end up with two wet kids and a half wet Nikki"
"Nic was a part of my life from the day she was born. I watched her grow from baby to young lady and the most doting mother I have ever seen"
Auntie Mel Eales
"I remember when Nic was expecting Owen and Maz sent me up to look at her room, you couldn't see the floor! I asked her where the baby was going to go and now have a child exactly the same"
"I remember Saturday afternoons playing in Nicki's lounge...my brother had his first crush on her too"
"I never knew my cousin Nicki but I remember the first time I saw the news, initially I was excited because I knew everyone but then I realised the significance of everyone talking about her, it broke my heart to see everyone so upset"
"Nicki was a friend to everyone and always had a cheeky glint in her eye. Mischievious, funny sensitive & thoughtful, the trendiest clothes and a laugh that could never be forgotten"
Way before mobile phones, Nic was famous for her selfies, always popping up on a processed film roll - Donna Payne
"I remember horseriding with Nic on Saturday mornings and playing with dolls in her backyard. Nic had a 'frankie says relax' T-shirt and I wouldn't shut up until I got one too"
"My mum had a toy party and I had my eye on a small dragon, I wasn't allowed it but in the morning when I woke it was on my pillow...that was the last time I saw her"
"I remember the impact of my auntie's disappearance and being convinced I had seen her drive past, I just wanted it to be true"
"Despite being so young when she went, I remember auntie Nicki dropping me off at Nursery, Owen was in his car seat next to me"
"She used to let me wear her pink Hummel tracksuit bottoms in PE, leaving her with my red shiny adidas shorts, she didn't care though"
"Confident, strong, brave and fearless. She knew her own mind and was a friend who gave me great strength and support"
"Nic was my big cousin, young enough to be in our gang but old enough to be a guardian too. Nic took me under her wing and no one upset me because my big cousin was there, She was so well respected and never took any nonsense from anyone. I looked up to her and she looked out for me"
"Being so close in both age & proximity, when Nicki went, everything in life changed..."
"I remember the "cake off'" - I tried to put cake in her face only I failed but Nic waited and her revenge was full on, the birthday cake went full in my face - much to the amusement of everyone"
