    Suffolk Police Media Release

    27 September 2016

    Police are growing increasingly concerned for the safety of a 23-year-old man who went missing following a night out in Bury St Edmunds.

    Corrie McKeague was last seen in Brentgovel Street in Bury St Edmunds at around 3.20am on Saturday morning, 24 September, and has not been seen or been in contact with anyone since.

    He was reported as missing to police yesterday afternoon, Monday 26 September, and since then officers have been conducting enquiries to trace him.

    From CCTV in Bury St Edmunds it is believed he briefly slept in a doorway before getting up and moving away – possibly with the aim of walking home several miles away. Today the National Police Air Service helicopter has been up assisting with searches in the area and police are asking anyone who may have seen him in Bury St Edmunds in the early hours of Saturday, or anyone who may have seen him walking out of the area to come forward.

    Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have seen him since, or anyone who may have information about where he is now, and are asking them to get in touch immediately.

    Police are also asking dog walkers or anyone who may be out in the countryside around Bury St Edmunds to get in touch if they notice anything unusual and are asking residents to check any outbuildings.

    Corrie is described as white, 5ft 10ins tall, of medium build, with short light brown hair. He was wearing a light pink polo shirt and white jeans at the time he was last seen.

    Officers are concerned for his welfare and are asking anyone who may have seen Corrie, or anyone who has any information on his whereabouts, to contact the duty sergeant at Bury St Edmunds on 101.


    Fears growing for Missing RAF serviceman who vanished after night out

    28 September 2016

    Concerns were growing today for the safety of a young military [service]man who vanished after a night out and may have tried to walk eight miles back to his base.

    [...]

    Camera operators saw him getting up and walking off - but he failed to return to Honington, the headquarters of the RAF Force Protection who guard UK military installations around the world.

    Despite an appeal to motorists, villagers along the serviceman’s route and a search by the Suffolk police helicopter there has been no trace of him.

    Corrie is described as white, 5ft 10ins tall, medium build, with short light brown hair. He was wearing a light-pink polo shirt and white jeans when last seen.


    Suffolk Police Update

    28 September 2016

    Suffolk Police are continuing to appeal for help to trace missing 23-year-old Corrie McKeague who was last seen in Bury St Edmunds in the early hours of Saturday.

    Mr McKeague, an RAF serviceman, had been on a night out in Bury St Edmunds and was last seen in Brentgovel Street around 3.20am on Saturday, 24 September. He has not been seen or been in contact with anyone since, which is out-of-character.

    He was reported as missing to police on Monday afternoon, 26 September, and since then officers have been conducting extensive enquiries and searches to trace him.

    Since the missing report police have made numerous enquiries including talking with friends and family, checking with local taxi firms and working to identify CCTV that may help piece together which direction he went in from Brentgovel Street.

    Police are continuing to review CCTV in a bid to trace his movements and specialist search officers have been out in the area between Honington and Bury St Edmunds to look for him, checking possible routes between the two locations.

    From CCTV in Bury St Edmunds it is believed he briefly slept in a doorway before getting up and moving away – possibly with the aim of walking home, on base at RAF Honington. Over the past 48 hours the National Police Air Service helicopter has been up assisting with searches in the area and Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue have also been helping.

    Suffolk officers are liaising with the RAF and Mr McKeague’s family and are asking anyone who may have information that may assist to come forward.

    Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have seen him since, or anyone who may have information about where he is now, and are asking them to get in touch immediately.

    Police are also asking dog walkers or anyone who may be out in the countryside around Bury St Edmunds to get in touch if they notice anything unusual and are asking residents to check any outbuildings.

    Corrie is described as white, 5ft 10ins tall, of medium build, with short light brown hair. He was wearing a light pink shirt and white jeans or trousers at the time he was last seen.

    As time passes police are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare and officers are asking anyone who may have seen Corrie, or anyone who has any information on his whereabouts, to contact the duty sergeant at Bury St Edmunds on 101

    Family's Emotional Plea For Missing RAF Man To 'Get In Touch'

    30 September 2016

    Speaking to Forces TV Tony Wringe said that Corrie McKeague’s disappearance has been "hard" for the family, who have been questioning "all the different things that could have happened" to the 23-year-old, who was last seen in Bury St Edmunds a few miles from his base at RAF Honington in Suffolk.

    It comes as the search for Corrie shifted its focus to the busy A134 road linking Bury St Edmunds to RAF Honington. One theory is that he could have been hit by a vehicle while walking along the road in the dark and thrown into the undergrowth.

    Suffolk Constabulary have confirmed that Corrie's mobile phone along with his debit and credit cards have not been used since he disappeared.


    Suffolk Police Update

    02 October 2016

    Police expand the search area and continue to appeal for members of the public to come forward in their search for 23 year old missing serviceman Corrie McKeague.

    Police are releasing images of the exact clothing he is believed to have been wearing at the time of his disappearance: a pink Ralph Lauren polo shirt and brown suede Timberland boots.

    The last confirmed sighting of Corrie is on Saturday 24 September at 3.20am on Brentgovel Street in Bury St Edmunds town centre in Suffolk.

    Searches have been carried out along the A134 between Bury St Edmunds and Honington over the weekend and have extended to further afield.

    Enquiries and information received over the past week have led police to believe he may have been in the Mildenhall area at some point between 4.30am and 8am on Saturday 24 September, and police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen or spoken to a man matching Corrie’s description in this area around this time.

    Anniversary checks were carried out by Suffolk Police on Friday 30 September through to the early hours of Saturday 1October and searches continue to be conducted in the wider area by the RAF, Suffolk Police, Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue, and the National Police Helicopter.

    Chief Inspector Steve Denham of Suffolk Police says:

    "This behaviour is totally out of character for Corrie and we are very concerned for his welfare.

    "We are still examining CCTV in Bury St Edmunds town centre and urging any friends or members of the public who may have seen or spoken to Corrie over the course of the evening of Friday 23 September and the early hours of Saturday 24 September in Bury St Edmunds to come forward.

    We are also appealing for people or drivers in the local area or further afield who may have seen him after our last confirmed sighting of him on Brentgovel Street at 3.20am to contact us.

    Any information or conversation could be significant at this stage of the enquiry as we continue to piece together his movements."

    Anyone with any information should contact Suffolk Police on 101 or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.


    Suffolk Police Update

    03 October 2016

    Police are continuing to appeal for help to trace 23-year-old missing man Corrie McKeague.

    Searches by Suffolk Police, RAF personnel, Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue, and the National Police Air Service helicopter have continued over the weekend, and checks were carried out in Bury St Edmunds a week on from his disappearance, but these have not revealed any new information as to his whereabouts at this time.

    Analysis of mobile phone data shows his phone moved between Bury and Barton Mills on the morning of his disappearance. The work shows the phone was in Bury St Edmunds early on Saturday 24 September and but then moved to the Barton Mills area. It doesn’t move after this and has not been used since. This phone has not been found at this time.

    Police are looking at what happened but are exploring the possibility that the phone may have been lost or discarded as the timings of the movement has been found to coincide with that of a bin lorry that is known to have travelled between the locations at the time. The bin lorry has been seized for examination.

    The weight of the pick-up has been analysed at it appears the weight of the load was under 15kg – so it is not thought that Corrie was with the phone, however searches are being carried out between Bury and Barton Mills.

    Anyone who may have seen or heard from him since the early hours of last Saturday is being asked to get in touch as a matter of urgency.

    If you saw him or have any information about where he is now please contact the duty sergeant at Bury St Edmunds by dialling Suffolk Police on 01473 782019.

    Corrie Mckeague: Mother's appeal over missing airman son

    03 October 2016

    Corrie Mckeague, based at RAF Honington in Suffolk, disappeared after a night out in Bury St Edmunds nine days ago.

    Nicola Urquhart said someone would have seen her 23-year-old son at "three o'clock in the morning walking in a pink shirt and white trousers".

    Her plea to find him comes after police revealed they had seized a bin lorry believing it may contain his phone.

    [...]

    "Once he goes out he is a creature of habit - he will leave absolutely on his own," said Mrs Urquhart.

    "He will go and get food and if he has to lay down and have a sleep before he goes home he will. Nothing in his behaviour was remotely unusual," she said.

    "What is absolutely out of character is that he would not contact one of us."

    [...]

    Police said they did not believe Mr Mckeague still had his mobile phone after data showed it moved to nearby Barton Mills, matching the route of a bin lorry.

    The phone has not been used since it was pinpointed to the location, which is about 10 miles (16km) from Bury.

    Police said they were "exploring the possibility that the phone may have been lost or discarded as the timings of the movement has been found to coincide with that of a bin lorry".

    [...]

    Police said he could have been in the area of Mildenhall between 04:30 and 08:00 on the Saturday.

    [...]

    Speculation that Mr Mckeague may have been kidnapped has been played down by police, who said they were keeping an "open mind" to all possibilities.

    A police spokesman said the main line of inquiry was Mr Mckeague had attempted to walk home after his night out.


    Suffolk Police Update

    04 October 2016

    Police searching for missing Corrie McKeague are asking anyone with information about where his mobile phone is to come forward – and are renewing appeals for any sightings.

    The Nokia Lumia 435 phone is thought to have been in a black PVC leather case which was frayed and worn around the edges. An examination of the bin lorry seized has not located this and the vehicle has been released.

    Officers are continuing to explore the possibilities around where the phone may be and searches for it are continuing. The work shows the phone was in Bury St Edmunds early on Saturday 24 September but then moved to the Barton Mills area.

    Police enquiries are ongoing, with searches for Corrie and CCTV examination both key areas of the investigation. Officers are viewing hours of footage to see if there are any further sightings of him and have already spoken to many local businesses about any CCTV they may have. Officers are also asking anyone else in the Bury area who have their own private CCTV to take a look if they have footage from Saturday 24 September and to alert police if they think it may be of use.

    Police are also asking any market traders who were setting up in the early hours of Saturday to come forward if they have not yet spoken to the team working on the case.

    Suffolk Constabulary continues to receive support from Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue volunteers, RAF personnel and the National Police Air Service helicopter, which has been up in the Bury area this morning.

    Following the media conference yesterday, police have received a small number of calls and continuing to ask anyone who may have seen Corrie during the evening of Friday 23 into the early hours of Saturday 24 September to come forward as soon as possible.

    Temporary Superintendent Kim Warner said; “We would like to thank all those who have spoken to us and assisted with the enquiry to date, however we still need anyone who can help to come forward. If you were out in the Bury, Honington or Barton Mills area between Friday night and Saturday and saw Corrie we need to speak to you. He was wearing distinctive light clothing – a pink polo shirt and white jeans or trousers – and was friendly and engaging with a number of people during the course of the evening. While we’re particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen him after 3.20am on Saturday 24 we also need to talk to you if you saw him during the evening.

    “Our key appeal is for anyone with information that may help to come forward as soon as possible.”

    should call the incident room on 01473 782019.

    Corrie’s family have asked that any information that is being posted onto their social media is directed to police, as they are receiving a large number of messages. If you have any information please call the number above or visit Suffolk Constabulary’s Facebook page.

    Lead police officer in Corrie McKeague hunt says focused searches and CCTV are key to finding the ‘healthy, active’ serviceman

    04 October 2016

    The man in charge of the inquiry to find Suffolk serviceman Corrie McKeague has stressed the quest to locate him is still be treated as a missing person investigation.

    [...]

    Police have said they have ruled out any link to the attempted abduction of an airman outside RAF Marham in Norfolk in July and have traced the 23-year-old’s mobile phone movements to a bin lorry travelling between Bury and Barton Mills.

    [...]

    Police are making significant efforts to locate the serviceman including using a specialist police search team, assisted by Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue, and RAF personnel.

    It was not unknown for Mr McKeague, who takes pride in his fitness and health, to decide to walk the nine miles back to RAF Honington after a night out in Bury.

    Acting Supt Warner said: “The search is focused. We are talking about nine miles from Bury St Edmunds to Honington.”

    He added places such as Troston and Great Livermere are where search teams have been concentrating their efforts.

    Numerous officers are currently trawling through more CCTV and police have been making enquiries such as focusing on his mobile phone records to build a picture of where he could possibly have gone.

    [...]

    Analysis of Corrie’s mobile phone data has found its movement coincided with that of a refuse collection lorry known to have travelled between Bury and Barton Mills after he was last seen.

    [...]

    The weight of the pick-up has been analysed at it appears the weight of the load was under 15kg. Therefore it is not thought Corrie was with his phone.


    Police confirm missing Fife serviceman’s phone search unsuccessful

    04 October 2016

    Officers had thought they had traced Dunfermline-born Corrie’s mobile phone to a bin lorry which had travelled between Bury St Edmunds and the Suffolk town of Barton Mills, but the link has now been ruled out following an unsuccessful search of the vehicle in question, ITV reported.

    Corrie’s Nokia Lumia 435 phone is thought to have been kept in a black PVC leather case, which was slightly worn at the edges.

    Suffolk police chief Kim Warner announced a number of leads are currently being followed and renewed a call for members of the public to come forward with information.

    The temporary chief superintendent also confirmed local businesses and stall holders are being quizzed for any possible information.


    Suffolk Police Update

    05 October 2016

    Police searching for missing 23-year-old Corrie McKeague are making a direct appeal to trace three young people who were in Short Brackland in Bury St Edmunds on the morning of his disappearance to come forward.

    The three – all said to be aged between around 16 to 18, one a female described as being white, of quite slim build, possibly with blonde hair, wearing either a dark green or navy blue jumper-style top, and two males, one wearing a hooded top – were seen in this area of Bury St Edmunds, towards the back of Cornhill Walk shopping centre, around 4.20am on Saturday 24 September.

    Police are keen to speak to anyone who may have been in the town centre who may have seen Corrie. From information received as a result of ongoing enquiries there is a possibility that these three may have seen Corrie in the area after the last confirmed sighting of 3.20am and officers are urging them to get in touch.

    While there is nothing to suggest they are involved in his disappearance in any way they may have information that can help progress the enquiry.

    Temporary Superintendent Kim Warner said; “We should reassure them that we just wish to speak to them as potential witnesses at this stage. We appreciate that getting in touch with police may be intimidating but we do need to speak to you. At this stage in the investigation we just need to talk to anyone who may have seen Corrie during his night out so we can build a picture. We need to find him and a number of enquiries are being carried out to do this but we know, from CCTV images that we have already viewed, that he engaged with a number of people during his evening out.

    have had several calls but still need to talk to anyone who may have seen him or spoken to him during the early hours.”

    Searches and CCTV work is continuing with officers keen for anyone who may have seen Corrie to get in touch. He was wearing distinctive light clothing – a pink polo shirt and white jeans or trousers – and, from CCTV, was friendly and interacting with a number of people during the course of the evening.

    Anyone with information should call the incident room on 01473 782019.


    Missing Corrie McKeague: Last friend to see him issues plea for safe return

    06 October 2016

    Abdulkadir Tekagac, who works in Pizza Mama Mia, became friendly with Corrie after the 23-year-old began dropping in for a kebab after regular nights out.

    He said there was nothing unusual about the night Corrie went missing and that police have been unable to find anything fruitful from the takeaway’s CCTV.

    He said: “Corrie is my friend. He came in here maybe every two weeks for food when he was out.

    “He usually came in with an American guy from the base.

    “There wasn’t anything different about him or the way he was acting when he came in that night.

    "He was always just friendly and normal. I don’t know what has happened, but I hope they find him soon.”


    Suffolk Police Update

    06 October 2016

    Searches for missing Corrie McKeague are ongoing as police continue to urge those who were in Bury St Edmunds town centre in the early hours of Saturday 24 September to come forward.

    Despite a number of individuals making contact, from CCTV it is clear there are still a large number of people who were in the area at the relevant time – from 3.20am onwards – who have not yet got in touch.

    Officers are continuing to trawl through hours of CCTV to try and trace Corrie, 23, but it has become apparent that people were walking in the town centre and driving through around this key time and police are renewing appeals for anyone who may have been there to come forward.

    Temporary Superintendent Kim Warner said; "We are taking time to do the searches and to go through hundreds of hours of CCTV from town, business and individual sources. We know from CCTV that there are still a number of people who were in the area of Brentgovel Street, Short Brackland and the town centre around and after the crucial 3.20am time on Saturday 24 September who have still not come forward to police and we would urge them to get in touch. You may think that didn’t see anything that will help, but your account could hold clues to what has happened and may be important in piecing this all together.

    "Please call us. We need to know everything as we continue to work to trace Corrie.”

    British Transport Police assisted with searches along the railway line from Bury St Edmunds yesterday, as part of the ongoing search strategy to locate Corrie. Today the A1101 between the Fiveways roundabout at Barton Mills and Icklingham was closed for a brief time while officers conducted further searches along this road, and more work has been carried out along the A11.

    All the searches are being carried out to locate anything that may help locate Corrie.

    Police are continuing to appeal for three young people seen at Short Brackland around 4.20am on Saturday 24 September to come forward. The three are all said to be aged between around 16 to 18, one a female described as being white, of quite slim build, possibly with blonde hair, wearing either a dark green or navy blue jumper-style top, and two males, one wearing a hooded top.

    Anyone with information should call the incident room on 01473 782019.

    Suffolk Police Update

    09 October 2016

    Officers searching for missing Corrie McKeague have carried out checks in the centre of Bury St Edmunds in a further bid to trace the 23-year-old.

    Police were out in the Brentgovel Street/ Short Brackland area of the town Friday night into yesterday morning, Saturday 8 October, two weeks on from the last sighting of Corrie around 3.20am on Saturday 24 September.

    When he was last seen he was wearing distinctive light clothing – a pink shirt and white jeans or trousers.

    Officers spoke to a number of people in the area and are going through information given to them to identify possible new lines of enquiry.

    The checks were carried out as police continue to work to identify those who were in the centre of Bury St Edmunds in the early hours of Saturday 24 September, as part of ongoing enquiries to discover where Corrie is now.

    CCTV has shown the area was comparatively busy between 3am and 6am and police need to trace and speak to all those who were there between these times.

    Officers have traced three people they have been looking to speak to who were seen near to Short Brackland around 4.20am on Saturday 24 September and officers will be speaking with these witnesses.

    Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time or anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 01473 782019.


    RAF missing airman Corrie McKeague cared too much for puppy to go awol, says family

    09 October 2016
    Nothing has been seen or heard of the 23-year-old since the early hours of Saturday, September 24, when he vanished from Bury St Edmunds town centre in Suffolk.
    Corrie, a gunner with the RAF Regiment, had left his cross breed seven-month-old puppy Louell in his room at nearby RAF Honington before going out.
    His brother Darroch, 21, said: “He loves that dog to bits and he wouldn’t have left her for long.

    [...]

    Nicola and Darroch insist Corrie loves his career with the RAF and got on well with his fellow soldiers, who specialise in guarding military aircraft bases.


    Suffolk Police Update

    10 October 2016

    Work is continuing to locate 23-year-old Corrie McKeague who went missing in the early hours of Saturday 24 September.

    As a result of extensive work by detectives over the weekend, police have now been able to identify a number of individuals who were seen on CCTV in the area at the time. This includes the three young people police made appeals to trace last week. Police are looking to speak to all of these individuals, with the aim of gathering any further information that may help locate Corrie. At this stage all of those identified are being treated as potential witnesses.

    Officers are continuing to ask anyone who was in the area in the early hours of Saturday 24 to come forward.

    There isn’t 100% CCTV coverage in the area and officers are continuing to go through hundreds of hours of footage to try to piece together what may have happened to Corrie, to see if there are any further images of him in Bury St Edmunds.

    Police are continuing to keep an open mind as to what has happened to Corrie, and continue to investigate all possibilities. This includes the possibility that Corrie may have attempted to walk home but not been captured on CCTV, that he has willingly gone with someone else or that something else may have happened. At this stage there is no evidence of criminality and nothing to indicate any third party involvement, however this continues to be subject to the ongoing investigation and nothing can be ruled out at this time.

    Further searches are being carried out along the A1101 today.

    Mother suggests 'third party' involved in airman going missing

    10 October 2016

    The mother of a missing RAF serviceman has said a "third party" may have been involved in her son's disappearance.

    [...]

    Police have searched along a section of railway line and A-roads, hours of CCTV have been reviewed and police officers, RAF personnel and the National Police Air Service helicopter have been trawling the area.

    Mr McKeague's mother, Nicola Urquhart wrote in a Facebook post: "Police are confident Corrie is not still in Bury and has not left on foot.

    "This can only mean there is third party involvement, there is just no evidence so far to prove criminality.


    Suffolk Police Update

    11 October 2016

    As the search continues for 23-year-old Corrie McKeague, officers are still asking anyone who spoke to him or who may have seen him in the early hours of Saturday 24 September to come forward.

    Following checks two-weeks on from his disappearance a number of people seen on CCTV have been identified however there remain a small number who may have seen or spoke to Corrie during the course of the evening who have not yet been traced. Did you speak to Corrie – who was dressed in a pink shirt and white jeans, and who spoke with a Scottish accent – during the course of your night out?

    At least one person who police have spoken to during the course of enquiries said Corrie told them he was planning to walk home. Did you see him, speak to him, or offer him a lift?

    Police are still urging anyone who may have interacted with him Friday night into Saturday morning to come forward as you may have a small piece of information that may help piece this together.

    Detectives are continuing to work to talk to all of those seen on CCTV in the area around the time of the last confirmed sighting of Corrie – at 3.20am on Saturday 24 September – and have interviewed dozens of people as the enquiry progresses.

    Work is still going on to examine the CCTV footage seized, to see if there are any further confirmed images of Corrie’s movements after 3.20am. Officers are also re-visiting possible routes from the town centre to see if any other footage may be available. If you have private CCTV or if you took mobile device photographs or footage in Bury St Edmunds on the morning on Saturday 24 September officers are asking you to review it to see whether any images may include Corrie - or a man dressed in light clothing - and to alert officers if you think you may have anything that can help.

    Police are keeping an open mind as to what has happened to Corrie, and continue to investigate all possibilities.

    This includes the possibility that Corrie may have attempted to walk home but not been captured on CCTV, that he has willingly gone with someone else, perhaps in a vehicle, or that something else may have happened. At this stage there is no evidence of criminality and nothing to indicate any third party involvement, however this continues to be subject to the ongoing investigation and nothing can be ruled out at this time.

    Today further searches have been carried out on a route parallel to the A134 between Honington and Fornham St Martin.

    Extensive ground and air searches have been carried out, including looking at waterways in the area, and Suffolk Police have also consulted national experts to ensure everything possible is being done through searches and other work to find him.

    Officers continue to liaise with Corrie’s family and the RAF as these extensive enquiries progress.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 01473 782019.


    Missing Corrie told friends he was planning to walk home after night out

    11 October 2016

    Police searching for a missing serviceman from Suffolk say they've interviewed a witness who confirmed Corrie McKeague had told him that he had intended to walk home.


    Suffolk Police Update

    12 October 2016

    The National Search and Rescue Dog Association have again been out searching along a route parallel to the A134 between Honington and Fornham St Martin this morning as part of continuing work to locate missing 23-year-old Corrie McKeague.

    Police have ongoing enquiries to locate Corrie however at this stage there remains no positive sighting of him after 3.20am on Saturday 24 September.

    Detectives are keeping an open mind as to what may have happened to him, with a large number of enquiries being carried out to try to find him. At this stage nothing can be ruled out and police are still looking at whether Corrie attempted to walk home but wasn’t captured on CCTV, whether he may have willingly gone with someone else, perhaps in a vehicle, or that something else may have happened.

    There continues to be no evidence of criminality and nothing to indicate any third party involvement, however this continues to be subject to the ongoing investigation.

    With this in mind hundreds of hours of CCTV footage have already been viewed and officers have been out on the ground seeing if any further images can be gathered. There is not 100% coverage in the area and therefore police are broadening the search for CCTV images and continuing to view the footage already collected.

    Police and Corrie’s family are thanking all of those who have supported and assisted with the enquiry to date, including the RAF, Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue, the National Search and Rescue Dog Association, the National Police Air Service helicopter, members of the public who have come forward and who have circulated messages, businesses and organisations displaying the missing poster and landowners who have checked their fields in the bid to find Corrie.

    Although dozens of people have been traced and spoken to, work is ongoing to talk to those who know Corrie, those seen on CCTV and those who have called in with information that may be relevant to the enquiry.

    Police continue to ask anyone who spoke to Corrie on the evening of Friday 23 September or the morning of Saturday 24 September, or anyone with information that may help locate him, to come forward.

    Corrie was dressed in noticeable light clothing - a pink shirt and white jeans – and is known to have been friendly and outgoing, chatting to people in the area in his distinctive Scottish accent.

    If you interacted with him on Friday night into Saturday morning please get in touch as you may have a small piece of information that may help the investigation.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 01473 782019.

    Suffolk Police Update

    14 October 2016

    Police investigating the disappearance of 23-year-old Corrie McKeague continue to carry out work to locate him.

    Three weeks on since he went missing detectives are making extensive enquiries and searches are ongoing.

    Officers at this stage still do not have a positive sighting of Corrie on CCTV after 3.20am on Saturday 24 September in the Brentgovel Street area of Bury St Edmunds and the viewing of footage is being systematically broadened out to explore all possibilities.

    Although a number of people who were in the area around this time have been identified via CCTV, and individuals coming to police, there remain a number who have not yet come forward and detectives continue to appeal for them to get in touch as work continues to identify them.

    This weekend further searches will be carried out by SULSAR and NSARDA (Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue & the National Search and Rescue Dog Association). This work will again focus on areas around the A1101.

    Police are also asking local residents, businesses and landowners across the Bury St Edmunds, Barton Mills and Honington area to check any outbuildings and property in the ongoing bid to find Corrie.

    Anyone who may have been out in Bury St Edmunds between 3am and 6am on Saturday 24 September or anyone with information that may assist is urged to please call the incident room on 01473 782019.

    Following speculation around the discovery of the body of a man in a suitcase in a layby in Derbyshire, Suffolk Police can confirm officers have been in contact with Derbyshire Constabulary and have confirmed that the body found is not that of Corrie McKeague.

    The missing person enquiry to trace Corrie continues.


    Suffolk Police Update

    17 October 2016

    Thousands of leaflets have been distributed in the continuing bid to find missing Corrie McKeague.

    Individuals and businesses in the area have been supporting the appeal by generously printing posters and leaflets for distribution, from a missing poster produced by police, and these are now all over the area as work continues to trace the missing 23-year-old RAF serviceman.

    Three-week checks were carried out in Bury St Edmunds on Friday night into Saturday morning with two more individuals who were in Bury St Edmunds around the relevant time being identified as a result, however at this stage there is no information that gives any confirmed sighing of Corrie beyond 3.20am on Saturday 24 September.

    Further searches were also carried out over the weekend by SULSAR and NSARDA (Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue & the National Search and Rescue Dog Association) but nothing further has been found to take the enquiry further forward at this time.

    CCTV viewing continues. There is not 100% coverage in the area and efforts are continuing to see if any images have been captured of Corrie after 3.20am. The viewing of footage is being systematically broadened out to explore all possibilities.

    Police are continuing to ask local residents, businesses and landowners across the Bury St Edmunds, Barton Mills and Honington area to check any outbuildings and property in the ongoing bid to find Corrie.

    Missing RAF airman Corrie Mckeague alive, mum believes



    20 October 2016

    The mother of an RAF airman who went missing more than three weeks ago has said she "absolutely" believes her son is still alive.

    Corrie Mckeague, 23, a gunner based at RAF Honington in Suffolk, vanished after a night out in Bury St Edmunds early in the morning of 24 September.

    His mother Nicola Urquhart told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme:"Nobody can just disappear."

    [...]

    Ms Urquhart said the phone data suggests this journey took 28 minutes, which is "how long it would take to drive [between the two places]".

    It is not known whether the phone was in Mr Mckeague's possession at the time of the journey, but Ms Urquhart said that entering a stranger's car was "genuinely something Corrie would do".

    She said he was the type of person that, "if he saw someone walking down the road and he was in a car, he would stop and give that complete stranger a lift".


    Suffolk Police Update

    21 October 2016

    Specialist RAF search officers have joined the hunt for missing Corrie McKeague.

    The searches are continuing to locate Corrie, 23, who went missing four weeks ago. At an early stage a search strategy was put into place and this has been regularly reviewed, including by national experts, to encompass all relevant areas.

    This work continues to be prioritised, with officers systematically working through all possible lines of enquiry.

    The specialist RAF teams are joining police and Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue volunteers to carry out line searching of wooded areas on possible routes Corrie may have tried to walk home.

    Officers are continuing enquiries behind the scenes, including continued CCTV viewing and further investigation work to see if there are any clues as to what has happened to him.

    Despite extensive work carried out to date, there remains no positive sighting of Corrie since 3.20am on Saturday 24 September. He had been out for the evening in Bury St Edmunds and is known to have engaged with a number of people during his night out. Through comprehensive work and checks officers have managed to identify many of those seen on CCTV however there are still individuals who officers need to speak to.

    It should be stressed that even if you think you didn’t see anything of use then police still need to speak to you if you were in the area at the time, as you could have a small piece of information that could help.

    People who have recently come forward include individuals who were driving routes in the area in the early hours – between 3am and 6am – who, although they hadn’t seen Corrie, have given information that has allowed officers to be able to narrow down that he wasn’t seen walking a particular road at a particular time – and therefore anyone who was in the area may have information that can assist.

    Anyone who may have been out in the Bury St Edmunds, Honington or Barton Mills area between 3am and 6am on Saturday 24 September or anyone with information that may help should call the incident room on 01473 782019.

    Suffolk Police Update

    21 October 2016

    Police are releasing the 3.25am footage of Corrie McKeague as efforts continue to locate him.

    The footage shows Corrie in Brentgovel Street in Bury St Edmunds at 3.25am on Saturday 24 September and is the last confirmed sighting of him.

    Four weeks on, work is continuing to find him. Following national media appeals earlier in the week police have received a number of calls however, at this stage, no new information has been received to take this further forward, and officers continue to ask anyone who may have been in the area in the early hours of Saturday 24 September to come forward, regardless of whether you think you may have information that may assist or not.

    Today further searches have been completed in the Great Livermere area, with specialist RAF search officers joining police and Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue volunteers to comb through woodland areas. Line searches are being carried out, as part of the ongoing search strategy.

    Anyone who may have been out in the Bury St Edmunds, Honington or Barton Mills area between 3am and 6am on Saturday 24 September or anyone with information that may help should call the incident room on 01473 782019.





    Suffolk Police Update

    21 October 2016

    As enquiries continue to trace missing Corrie McKeague, police are releasing details of a further potential witness officers would like to speak to.

    Around 1.15am – 1.30am on Saturday 24 September Corrie bought takeaway food at Pizza Mama Mia in St Andrews Street North before walking off towards Brentgovel Street, as seen on the first CCTV images issued by police.

    While he was in the takeaway he went to sit with a group of people who have not yet been traced. This group are sought as witnesses and police need to speak to them. The group included a man described as black, who wore a distinctive black T-shirt with ‘Death’, the Roman numerals ‘LXXVIII’ and the number ‘78’ in large white letters on the rear and a white motif on the front. He appears to be shorter than Corrie, under around 5ft 10ins tall, and had short dark hair. He leaves the takeaway with Corrie, before Corrie is seen on the CCTV walking towards Brentgovel Street on his own.

    There is no suggestion that there was any contact after this, however police need to talk to anyone who spoke to Corrie in the hours before he disappeared. At this time this group are the last known to have been in conversation with Corrie.

    Officers are asking the group and the man who spoke with Corrie to come forward as potential witnesses – and are asking anyone with information about who they may be to get in touch.

    Anyone who may have been out in the Bury St Edmunds, Honington or Barton Mills area between 3am and 6am on Saturday 24 September or anyone with information that may help should call the incident room on 01473 782019.

    Missing Corrie McKeague 'spotted heading to RAF base'

    24 October 2016

    A serviceman missing for a month may have been spotted heading towards his RAF base, police said.

    Detectives are investigating the possible sighting of Corrie McKeague, who disappeared after a night out with friends in Bury St Edmunds.

    A man has come forward claiming he saw a man in light clothing near the Bury St Edmunds sugar beet factory at around 4.20am on the night Mr McKeague disappeared.


    Suffolk Police Update

    24 October 2016

    It’s now a month since the last confirmed sighting of Corrie McKeague and work continues to find him.

    Following an appeal on Friday, police now have leads to identify the man seen in Pizza Mama Mia in St Andrews Street North around 1.15am – 1.30am. Officers had appealed for anyone who may have been in the takeaway to come forward – particularly a man dressed in a black T-shirt with white writing on – and details provided have now led officers to new information to identify him. Another person has also got in touch to say she was in the takeaway and she will be interviewed by police.

    Police have also had a possible sighting of Corrie heading towards Honington. Officers received a call from a man who told them he had been driving in the area around 4.20am when he saw a man dressed in light clothing walking near the Hollow Road industrial estate, at the back of the sugar beet factory. Police are currently working to see if this can be confirmed as Corrie, however are continuing to ask anyone who may have seen him anywhere in the area in the early hours of Saturday to come forward.

    Corrie was reported as missing on the afternoon of Monday 26 September after he failed to turn up for work at RAF Honington as planned. He had the weekend off and had headed into Bury St Edmunds for a night out with his friends and colleagues on Friday evening, 23 September.

    As the missing person enquiry got underway police quickly determined that he had been engaging with people throughout his evening out – but that he hadn’t been seen or heard from after the early hours of Saturday 24 September.

    Police still need to trace a number of people who were seen on CCTV in the area around the time Corrie went missing and officers are continuing to ask anyone who was in the Bury, Honington or Barton Mills area in the early hours of Saturday 24 to come forward.

    Over the past few weeks officers have been carrying out extensive work to locate Corrie. In addition to looking at social media, his bank account, his mobile phone activity and other devices that may have held clues, a large number of searches have been made by air, on the ground and in the waterways around Bury St Edmunds to try and find him.

    Dozens of people have been spoken to and hundreds of lines of enquiry followed up, and police continue to urge anyone with information to come forward.

    Officers have viewed hundreds of hours of CCTV footage in the town centre and are continuing to view images from further out of the town in a bid to get further information that may take the enquiry forward.

    Corrie’s family have been instrumental in continuing media appeals to find him and they have thanked the thousands of members of the public here in Suffolk and elsewhere for their ongoing support – for printing and distributing leaflets, displaying posters and banners, and spreading the word in the ongoing effort to locate him.

    Detectives continue work to trace all those in Bury St Edmunds that morning as they may have information that can assist without realising this.

    Anyone who may have been out in the Bury St Edmunds, Honington or Barton Mills area between 3am and 6am on Saturday 24 September or anyone with information that may help should call the incident room on 01473 782019.



    Senior detective: 'Corrie McKeague didn't disappear on purpose'



    24 October 2016

    A former detective has told ITV News Anglia he believes a third party was involved in the disappearance of RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague - who has now been missing for a month.

    Colin Sutton was a senior detective for the Metropolitan Police, overseeing cases such as Milly Dowler's disappearance and subsequent murder. He retired from the force five years ago.

    He does not believe that Corrie intentionally disappeared.


    Suffolk Police Update

    25 October 2016

    A man in a black T-shirt with white writing on who Corrie McKeague spoke to in Pizza Mama Mia on the morning he disappeared has now been traced and spoken to.

    Following media appeals last week police received new information that means that many of those in the takeaway when Corrie was in there around 1.15am – 1.30am on Saturday 24 September have now been identified and officers are talking to them.

    Police have ongoing enquiries to trace Corrie and continue to appeal for anyone who may have seen him in the early hours of Saturday 24 September, anyone who may have seen him since or anyone with information about where he is now to come forward.

    Officers are looking into a reported sighting of a man dressed in light coloured clothing walking near the Hollow Road industrial estate, at the back of the sugar beet factory around 4.20am. It should be stressed that this is not a confirmed sighting and police are asking anyone who may have been in this area, or in the vicinity, to come forward regardless of whether you saw anything or not.

    At this time there are no confirmed sightings of Corrie after 3.25am in Brentgovel Street.

    It is important that anyone who may have anything that may help comes forward as soon as possible.

    Today further searches are being carried out between the A143 and A134, with Suffolk and Norfolk police search teams being joined by specialist search trained RAF personnel and Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue volunteers.

    Police are continuing to ask anyone who may have been out in the Bury St Edmunds, Honington or Barton Mills area in the early hours of Saturday 24 September to come forward.

    Detectives are working to trace all those in the area that morning as you may have information even if you don’t think you saw anything of use.

    Anyone who may have been out in the Bury St Edmunds, Honington or Barton Mills area between 3am and 6am on Saturday 24 September or anyone with information that may help should call the incident room on 01473 782019.

    Mum of missing airman Corrie says she believes he left Bury in vehicle

    26 October 2016

    The mother of missing airman Corrie McKeague says she is convinced he left Bury St Edmunds in a vehicle and is urging anyone with information to come forward.

    [...]

    He told at least one person he planned to walk the 10 miles back to his base at RAF Honington, as he often did.

    However, his mum Nicola Urquhart, from Dunfermline, said that with no sightings on CCTV after 3.25pm and extensive searches of the area yielding nothing, she believes her son left in a vehicle.

    "But then that opens it upto has he gone willingly or has he been taken. There’s no evidence of either but somebody knows something and we need someone to come forward," she said in an interview together with Corrie’s brother Makeyan McKeague with the Bury Free Press this afternoon.

    Suffolk Police Update

    11 November 2016

    Work is continuing to trace missing 23-year-old Corrie McKeague as police continue to ask anyone with information about his disappearance to come forward.

    Extensive enquiries are ongoing to try to find Corrie, who was last seen in Bury St Edmunds in the early hours of Saturday 24 September.

    Police have seized 1,100 hours of CCTV footage from both local authority, business and private individual sources. Over the past weeks this has been systematically viewed to see if there any further sightings of Corrie. Starting from the last confirmed sighting at 3.25am in Brentgovel Street the hours of footage have been gone through in time and location order – gradually expanding outwards to 8am and further away from the point of the last confirmed images of him.

    There remain no positive sightings of Corrie, however this work continues and all footage has been sent for further detailed analysis to ensure nothing has been missed.

    Searches have been carried out in a wide area between Bury St Edmunds, Honington and Barton Mills. This search strategy was put in place by specialist police officers and carried out by police, RAF personnel and volunteers from Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue (SULSAR) and NSARDA (National Search And Rescue Dogs Association).

    In the early stages roadsides between Bury St Edmunds and Honington were searched with this being expanded from the roads to surrounding farmland and woodland and to the Barton Mills area. To date searches have been carried out along possible routes between Bury and the base, on a route parallel to the A134 between Honington and Fornham St Martin, on the A1101 between the Fiveways roundabout at Barton Mills and Icklingham, around the Great Livermere area, between the A134 and A143 and in waterways. SULSAR and the RAF have assisted with water searches in the River Lark and in bodies of water and ditches between the town and the base.

    British Transport Police assisted with searches along the railway line from Bury St Edmunds, while the National Police Air Service helicopter has been carrying out searches throughout the investigation.

    Specialist RAF search teams have joined Suffolk police officers and Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue volunteers to carry out line searching of wooded areas too. New searches are being considered as the enquiry continues.

    As well as a team of police search officers, CCTV viewers and detectives carrying out enquiries, a number of other police staff have been supporting the investigation in various areas including to help identify and trace those seen on CCTV and, since the start of the enquiry, uniformed Suffolk officers have carried out visits and checks.

    In addition to RAF military police investigators, RAF search personnel and intelligence staff, Suffolk Constabulary are also receiving assistance from other specialist teams from other forces including CCTV viewers from Metropolitan Police.

    All of Suffolk Police’s work has been reviewed by other forces since the beginning of the investigation to ensure everything possible is being done.

    Detective Superintendent Katie Elliott said; “We have to keep an open mind as there is no key line of enquiry to take us in any one direction. We can’t rule anything out and therefore we have to continue to investigate all possibilities. Despite extensive searches, CCTV viewing, media appeals and many behind the scenes enquiries we still do not have a lead which takes us forward. Many theories are being explored and work is ongoing to trace everyone who was in the area around the key time as they may have information that may help.

    “Officers have been working to locate all individuals and vehicles seen in the area in the early hours and have spoken to dozens of people, however we know there are still some who haven’t come forward or been traced and we would continue to ask anyone in the vicinity that morning to come forward.

    “We have received support from many people in this work and we are grateful to all those who are assisting. It is important that we systematically work through all the information that has come into the enquiry and this work is continuing.”

    Anyone who may have been out in the Bury St Edmunds, Honington or Barton Mills area in the early hours of Saturday 24 September or anyone with information that may help should call the incident room on 01473 782019.



    Suffolk Police Update

    15 November 2016

    Suffolk Police will be closing one lane of the A14 at 10am tomorrow morning (Tuesday 15 November) east of Bury St Edmunds, as the search for missing RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague continues.

    After rush hour, one lane of the eastbound carriageway will be closed between the Moreton Hall and Rougham junctions, in order for police search teams to conduct searches at the roadside.

    The search will cover a mile and a half stretch of road and will continue into the afternoon, when the road is expected to fully reopen.



    Suffolk Police Update

    23 November 2016

    A police pod will be in place in the centre of Bury St Edmunds tomorrow and Friday, 24 and 25 November, as officers continue to investigate the disappearance of Corrie McKeague.

    The pod will be open between 9am and 5pm on both days as officers work to identify individuals seen on CCTV in the Brentgovel Street and Short Brackland area of the town between 3am and 8am on Saturday 24 September, around the time of the last confirmed sighting of Corrie at 3.25am.

    In the early stages of the enquiry officers worked overnight Friday nights into Saturday morning from a pod in Bury to show pub and club goers, and early morning workers, the images to see if they could help with identification. Other work has since been carried out to identify them, with continual appeals made for anyone there to come forward.

    There remain a number of people who have not been identified, however in many cases there are few distinguishing characteristics to help with this process, so officers will again go out in the town, this time during the day, to see if anyone can assist.

    Behind the scenes, police are continuing to work with partners to analyse CCTV footage in more detail. Further work is also currently being done around the footage to ensure nothing has been missed.

    A lot of work continues on the enquiry and police continue to ask anyone with information that may help find Corrie to call the incident room on 01473 782019.
