    You'd have to hope in the spirit of finding him asap they have had complete clarity with the police. After all you can hardly critisise them based on them not knowing knowledge you've not provided.

    Let's hope tonight sheds some more light on this.

    Thank you. Susan's case always pops up every now and then in my mind purely because the police completely missed her when really they should have found her during searches. I'm hoping for things to be a little clearer after the docu as I'm starting to get a bit dizzy with all the facts or lack of!

    Very plausible NorthernLight.

    I don't see how they could have...I think it's pure hope that someone's got him and are keeping him alive hetty...

    I meant more in terms of the family discovering something that the police have not, rather than them failing to share info from the start, but of course all that you have said would still apply in that scenario.

    The Mirror story didn't read to me like an investigative piece, more like a journalist/writer doing a run through.

    Police always seem to me to hold things close to their chest and not say more than the minimum. So if the police say they have no evidence of a third party, then that says to me they have no CCTV footage of Corrie getting in a car, no eyewitness reports of Corrie getting into a car or a fight, and no one coming forward to report that they've seen or heard something or given Corrie a lift.

    If the police search the horseshoe, investigate the bin lorry, check all this CCTV, do all the searches (in conjunction with Sulsar, the RAF and other agencies), talk to everyone they can, and still have no hard evidence or leads, how does anyone expect them to 'find' Corrie? In most cases a missing person would have been found through exactly this work.

    A thought I've just had is that I'm still not clear on what the rubbish collection was. If it was a recycling collection that went down a hand-sorting conveyor line, wouldn't electronic items such as phones go into a box for recycling of electronics and not into landfill or incinerator piles? And that would probably mean it the phone would be on a ship to China with the case stripped off and landfilled/incinerated.

    That's what I think redsnapper86. They (and I don't blame them) want to believe Corrie is alive and stay positive, anything else would be just to awful to contemplate.

    I know nothing about the RAF (or any Services) apart from what I read, but surely if there was even the slightest suspicion/chance that Corrie has been abducted the RAF or MOD would step in?

    I fear - as I always have - that Corrie evaded the CCTV (not deliberately) and did attempt to walk back.

    He could have hitched a lift en route or part way of course.

    What I haven't understood is the lack of searching.

    I wonder if the vehicles have perhaps been eliminated. It's a hard one to call but the police certainly seem to be thinking differently to the family.

    The only issue I have with the walking is the phone pings. It's not impossible his phone ended up in a bin accidentally but I find it implausible.

    Unless we're looking at a deliberate binning and attempting to walk home/another ulterior motive that I'm sure the family are equally likely to want to discount.

    Perhaps hitch hiking is the key.

    I don't know, I've been convinced also there's third party involvement but if there's no evidence what can you say? I was watching the mark duggan docu the other day (yesterday?) and they were saying how DNA and forensic evidence can't prove you didn't do something. In relation to none of his DNA on the gun, it didn't mean he didn't hold it. If that makes sense.

    It feels like we're back to the start. Police saying no third party involvement means he walked out of that horseshoe

    Does anyone know of a map of the areas searched so far or could we possibly obtain or find a link? For example were any areas along the A1101 searched? (The obvious route from BSE to BM based on the phone pings)

    Can someone run through the pings again? If I remember rightly, the first part we thought he was walking? Then it's stationery for an hour? Then he's in a car, then it stops again and goes off. Was that right?

    The phone pinged goodbye from the BSE mast at 0430 and pinged hello to the BM mast at 0458 remaining there till 0800 when it stopped. Correct me if that is wrong anyone please. There is some info at beginning of this thread and a couple of theories. I'll have a look back.

    I agree with the fact that if there was even the slightest evidence pointing to an abduction, the MOD would be involved. To investigate any military personnel abducted would be their area and jurisdiction, to my knowledge.

    I am also leaning towards him walking back and sadly was hit by a car by a driver who had taken his eyes off the road for a second and didn't realise he'd hit a person, rather assuming it was an animal.
    Or someone hit him whilst drink driving and simply hasn't come forward.
    The pings, IMO, can be explained if Corrie was on the edge of the BSE mast when the phone pinged and he then crossed over into the BM mast range fairly shortly afterwards. The masts, as I understand, have a wide range.
    That is unless police evidence has established the location to a very small area. Maybe they have, I don't know.

    Maybe, like others have previously stated, Corrie got a lift part way and was then ejected from the vehicle for one reason or another and the RTA theory then kicks in.

    May I also suggest that the family have been leaning towards trapping a perpetrator, by possibly a series of veiled threats, for want of a better expression.
    Maybe they are convinced that a third party was involved and with the case updates by Tony, it has been a way of trying to "eek" the suspect out, making him/her feel the pressure and that the net was closing in, the hope being that he/she would crack. Alluding to facts that whilst the family weren't 100% sure of, may have served to break the perpetrators silence.
    Please, please don't take offence to these comments, they're just thoughts I've had and aren't facts or accusations.
    Please feel free to pull my ideas apart! ;-) Though I'm sure the Forces tv this evening will probably blow it all out of the water anyway!

    I think this is where the Police may suffer from lack of manpower. Searches need great deal or manpower and organization. I would think Sulsar need to be advised by the Police of the preferred or most likely areas to search?
    I understand that privately organized searches have been mentioned. Again these need to be coordinated with Police, and there is the always the chance that important forensic evidence may be missed or contaminated by hundreds of members of the public wandering about. OIMO.
