    If he were working undercover, it seems that the RAF would have at least allowed him to tie up loose ends before being deployed, like finding someone to care for his dog. It also seems a little strange that they would just pluck him off the street in the wee hours of the morning to go on undercover assignment.

    Yes, but how do you explain that happening? To get a new identity you would need money to purchase the credentials, and you need those credentials to get a new job.

    I've served in the RAF and can tell you that the average RAF Regiment Gunner does not do undercover work. If they were involved in covert ops, they would be Special Forces, not on an RAF Regiment Squadron at Honington. Someone going undercover would be stable and not liable to blackmail. They would be able to let their family know they would be incommunicado. They would not disappear and have their photo and details plastered everywhere as that kind of defeats the object.

    The RAF, including the RAF Police, are not set up to deal with a missing persons case, so no, their level of involvement is not strange. The RAF Police has a different remit to the civilian police.

    Do you think maybe RAF thinks he might be AWOL, and they haven't got any real evidence to back it up

    I don't think many people think he is AWOL. It's really hard to go long term missing in the UK. The wilds of Scotland would be a good place to hide but his face is pretty well known up there. And why would he turn his back on his family, with whom he seems to have had a good relationship?

    Why, @Chrisxxx, are you so sure he's AWOL and not dead in a ditch somewhere?

    Hundreds of bodies never get found. How many do you think are under building foundations or snagged at the bottom of lakes? Or burnt to ashes, or cast out at sea or chucked into a disused quarry? Just buried deep in a field, or on the moors or in some deep dark woods? Or in a landfill?

    Most suicides are found, hard job to hide your dead self. But murderers go to great lengths to hide bodies. I'm not saying Corrie was murdered, but what I am saying is it's easier to stay hidden dead than alive.

    You know, if Corrie was a bit odd or a bit of a loner I could consider him being shacked up in a remote house with a beard and a dog, catching food to eat and laying low. But he's a young, vibrant social butterfly with a mum he adores who is broken. I just don't see him being happy holed up with no interaction with the outside world, I just don't.

    Why would he have been found? Did you read my previous post? Hundreds of bodies never get found because they get hidden. Do you think Claudia Lawrence and Suzy Lamplugh are also AWOL? Lord Lucan? Leah Croucher? Andrew Gosden? There are over 700 people on the UK's long term missing list, a huge proportion of those will never be found. Doesn't mean they're all just hiding.

    Anyway, I digress, because I'm not convinced Corrie was killed by someone else. It's still above AWOL on my list of probabilities, though.

    The RAF has said Corrie is not AWOL and will have used their knowledge and experience of previous incidences to state this. AWOL is the intent to remove oneself from military duties, without permission, on a temporary basis, so Corrie not taking anything with him does not indicate him taking himself off for a short period of time.

    His bank account would have been checked for any pattern of payments or withdrawals.

    Plus given the situation with his phone and his cars, and if he had been buying designer clothes after joining up, I doubt there would have been much spare money. Abandoning everything doesn't smack of planning, so how long do you think he saved up to try and do this? Who would bankroll him indefinitely?
