    Landfill search for Corrie McKeague stopped because of 'incorrect information', says mum

    4 October 2017

    [...]

    Nicola said the initial search was carried out based on evidence from landfill owners FCC Environment, which owns the two sites, and a private haulage firm which it hires.

    The serving police officer claimed they suggested just one lorry could have carried Corrie from the holding site in Red Lodge on the Monday after his disappearance.

    She said: "They've taken this step because the police themselves could not understand why they have not found him.

    "They were utterly convinced they were going to find him and it really did baffle them.

    "They now realise that the information they were given wasn't correct and they've went back and kept questioning it and they've finally realised that it wasn't just one lorry they should have been following."

    However she defended the police decision to search in the wrong place saying she was now "extremely confident" in their current investigation.

    "The problem is that they can only go on what they were told at the time and what they were told at the time was that it was just the one lorry that went in," she added.



    Corrie’s mum claims police followed “wrong” bin lorry in hunt for her son

    5 October 2017

    [...]

    The lorry understood to have emptied the bin it is believed Corrie may have been in, dumped its load in “bay three” at the Red Lodge Transfer Station in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, on Saturday 24th September last year .

    The dumped refuse was then crushed with a “dozer” along with other rubbish already in the bay.

    According to Nicola, it was previously understood that on the following Monday another lorry came along to collect the rubbish and transport it to the Milton Landfill, Cambridgeshire.

    However, she added that not all of the rubbish was collect from the bay at the transfer station meaning that a further three lorries which collected rubbish at the bay at later date may have picked up his body.

    Writing online Nicola said: [...]

    After the Biffa bin lorry unloads on the Saturday morning nothing else is put on top. However, on the Monday 8th further lorries dump their rubbish in bay three.

    “The weight the police had originally uncovered for the rubbish that was removed in the first load was also now found to be incorrect.”

    “This now means it is highly likely that the Biffa rubbish was never collected in that first load or went with the lorry the police had followed to Milton Landfill.”

    “Police have now found out that there were in fact three Lorries that picked up at Red Lodge and took rubbish to Milton Landfill so now all three of these vehicles have been checked to see if these also have GPS Tracker and their Tachographs have been checked.”



    Police deny claim Corrie landfill search based on details that were ‘not correct’

    9 October 2017

    Nicola said the initial search was carried out based on evidence from landfill owners FCC Environment, which owns the two sites, and a private haulage firm which it hires, which suggested just one lorry could have carried Corrie from the holding site on the Monday after his disappearance.

    She claims police have now discovered it could have been more than one, which has prompted them to widen the search. But Suffolk Police say the landfill ‘cell’ they searched contained a whole week’s waste from Red Lodge and other transfer depots.

    [...]

    A Suffolk Police spokesman said: “The area of Cell 22 within the original search parameters was identified as a result of a number of pieces of information and was extended twice following further data that came to light including data in respect of a vehicle taking waste to the landfill site.

    “The fact remains that the waste excavated to date includes approximately one weeks’ worth of waste from FCC Red Lodge and other transfer stations throughout the region and so the waste from a number of lorries delivering to the site during this period has been excavated and searched.

    "The area that has been searched still remains the location where Corrie was most likely to have been found and would still have been searched first had all of the information that has now been obtained through the diligent and painstaking work of the investigation team been known at the start of the search..

    “The disposal of waste is not a precise science and there are a number of locations where waste can be delivered into an open cell. The police have searched the most likely area and as a result of their work are able to establish the next most likely area.”

    ‘Blatant lies’ hampering Corrie search, says his dad

    18 October 2017

    [...]

    Now Corrie’s dad Martin, who lives in Cupar with his wife Trisha, has issued a statement on behalf of the McKeague family in Scotland in which he stresses his support for Suffolk Police.

    “Over the past year, the investigation into my son’s disappearance has been plagued by blatant efforts to use the media to misinform the public about the facts in the search for my son, Corrie,” he said.

    “The McKeague family in Scotland have made repeated efforts to fix these lies as each was printed.

    "We have tried at every opportunity to tell the truth, including that MIS, the agency that was paid tens-of-thousands from the pubic crowdfunding provided absolutely no new information to the police whatsoever; there was never a DSMA-Notice (which is an official request to news editors not to publish or broadcast items on specified subjects for reasons of national security); the police never seized and searched the wrong bin lorry.

    “All of the above can be confirmed by the Suffolk police.”

    He continued: “We believe that we owe my son, the public the police and the volunteers the truth.

    Suffolk Police Update

    20 October 2017

    Police can confirm that the resumption of the search for Corrie McKeague at the Milton landfill site will begin next week (Monday 23 October).

    The extended search, which is likely to take around four to six weeks, will concentrate on an area of Cell 22 next to the site of the earlier search. The indications are this is the next most likely area where Corrie could be.

    Careful re-checking of the data available to the Major Investigation Team has concluded the area of the original 20-week search is still the location where there was the highest likelihood of finding Corrie. However, the nature of waste disposal and its movement is not a precise science, hence the requirement to extend the search.



    Corrie McKeague Search To Resume Next Week

    20 October 2017

    [...]

    Search teams will return to the Milton landfill site in Cambridgeshire on Monday to look for the serviceman.

    An area, which has been labelled Cell 22, will be the focus and it is expected to last around four to six weeks.

    'Cell 22' is 10,000sq metres in size, and the new area that police will search is over 1800 cubic metres.

    [...]

    His mother spoke to Forces News about the police decision to re-start the landfill search for the missing airman.

    “I’m really pleased that they’ve re-started the search. It’s been horrible having to wait, feeling like nothing was getting done… Since July it’s been difficult just waiting.

    "That must mean they’re still getting the incorrect information and something else has happened, or that somebody else is involved, so they’ll have to go down that route.



    Search for missing airman Corrie to resume next week

    20 October 2017

    [...]

    And the news has been welcomed by Corrie’s relatives, with father, Martin who lives in Cupar with his wife Trisha, saying the wait for a date to be given had been “difficult for everyone.”

    “The entire McKeague family in Scotland welcomes the news from the Suffolk police that the search for Corrie at the Milton landfill site will resume on Monday 23rd October,” he said.

    “As you can imagine, the time between the decision to halt the search back on Friday 21st July and today’s announcement has been difficult for everyone.

    “However, this family continues to remain focused on the facts and on finding my son, and we will continue to support the Suffolk police and the volunteers from both the Suffolk and Norfolk police departments 100 per cent, as we have done from the outset.

    "Equally, we will continue to challenge those individuals who have since the beginning of this investigation purposefully lied and misinformed the media and the public about the facts in this investigation. Those who have supported us have a right to know the truth.

    “The facts and evidence in this investigation clearly point us towards the landfill site, and the police are doing the right by continuing to look for Corrie there.

    Police resume search for missing Corrie McKeague at Milton landfill site

    23 October 2017

    Police have resumed the search for 23-year-old missing airman Corrie McKeague today at a landfill site in Milton, Cambridgeshire.

    An extended search of the site, which is expected to take around four to six weeks, will concentrate on an area of cell 22, close to the site of the initial search for the airman.

    [...]

    The new search area, in Milton, Cambridgeshire, is the next most likely place where Mr McKeague could be found, Suffolk police said.

    A spokesman said: “Careful re-checking of the data available to the Major Investigation Team has concluded the area of the original 20-week search is still the location where there was the highest likelihood of finding Corrie.

    “However, the nature of waste disposal and its movement is not a precise science, hence the requirement to extend the search.”

    [...]

    Detective Superintendent Katie Elliott, of Suffolk police, added: “Throughout this rigorous investigation we have remained committed to following all reasonable lines of inquiry in our endeavours to discover what has happened to Corrie.

    “Confronted by the variances in the way waste can be deposited and through further investigation we cannot discount the possibility Corrie may be elsewhere in Cell 22.

    “Therefore, we believe our decision to extend the search area is the correct one.”

    Missing Corrie McKeague: Mum’s “great relief” after transfer station search

    30 October 2017

    The mother of missing Fife airman Corrie McKeague has spoken of her “great relief” that a search of a waste transfer station over the weekend proved fruitless.

    Nicola Urquhart was speaking after around 30 volunteers from the Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue (SULSAR) took time on Sunday to scour the Red Lodge Transfer Station in Suffolk in response to her ongoing fears her son may have been dumped there.

    [...]

    "Around 30 of the professional and dedicated volunteers yet again gave up their own precious free time to search for Corrie, along with fire service cadaver dogs,” Nicola explained.

    “When I’ve been requesting this search to be completed the DCI in charge was aware that although only one person he was aware of had managed to survive being crushed in the rear of a bin lorry.

    “As such, although the chance was extremely remote, it was still possible and he agreed the search would take place.
