    -Volunteers to help with searches are not needed at this time, and police kindly ask people to refrain from carrying out their own searches. If help is needed, media appeals will be made

    -Spread the word. Share this story on social media and share images of Corrie. You can also help just by telling more people about his disappearance. Someone knows something important, and they need to come forward

    -Find the Nokia Lumia 435 phone, kept in a tattered black PVC leather case. Anyone who knows where this phone might be, who may have the phone and anything relating to the phone should come forward. If you took the phone and think you might be arrested, police have stated that just knowing where it is far more important than any potential theft

    -If you live in Bury or the surrounding area check your gardens, sheds and allotments

    -Keep checking the Suffolk Police Facebook and Twitter feeds for official information releases

    If you have any information, or were out in Bury St Edmunds on the Friday night/Saturday morning, please phone 01473 782019.

    You can also phone Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111

    Suffolk police searching for Corrie McKeague renew appeals in bid to trace missing RAF Honington airman last seen in Bury St Edmunds

    28 October 2016

    More than a month after the missing airman was last seen in the town in the early hours of Saturday, September 24, officers say they are continuing to work behind the scenes in a bid to trace him.

    Police have gone through hundreds of hours of CCTV footage and continue to view images gathered from Bury on the morning the 23-year-old disappeared.

    Officers have gathered CCTV from businesses and private sources in and around the town, and have checked on possible routes out of Bury for private systems but they are continuing to ask anyone who may have private CCTV to get in touch if they have anything that might help.

    “Work continues to trace all of those in the area as efforts to find Corrie go on,” a police spokesman said,

    “A number of people have been traced and spoken to, however officers still need to hear from anyone who may have been walking, driving or cycling through the town, or on roads around the area.

    “Officers are also renewing calls for residents to check their gardens or any outbuildings.”

    At this time there are still no confirmed sightings of the missing RAF Honington airman after 3.25am on Saturday, September 24, in Brentgovel Street.

    All possibilities are being explored to find out what has happened to him.


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

    Alternatively people can call Crimestoppers, anonymously if required, on 0800 555 111

    The mother of missing RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague has vowed to keep searching until she finds her son as she led members of the public in a crowd-funded hunt.

    The family, along with Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue Team and public volunteers, began scouring King's Forest in between Barton Mills and Honington, Suffolk, on Saturday morning.

    So hard to watch his mum choking up. :(

    I think the fact he was intoxicated led to bad judgement. He may have crawled into a small space to keep warm or something. I've seen that happen more than once, sadly.

    Missing RAF serviceman Corrie Mckeague is due to become a father, his girlfriend has told the BBC.

    Mr Mckeague, from Fife, vanished after a night out in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, on 24 September.

    April Oliver, 21, had been in a relationship with the 23-year-old, who is based at nearby RAF Honington.

    Ms Oliver, who discovered she was expecting his child two weeks after his disappearance, said: "I've had to make a massive decision by myself."

    Did a driver hit missing RAF airman Corrie McKeague then panic and dispose of his body?

    The mother of missing Corrie McKeague today said: “In my head, I believe Corrie is still alive" as she joined a 100-strong team scouring remote fields and streets for the RAF serviceman today. But the head of the search team confirmed they were looking for a body.

    Corrie’s mum Nicola Urquhart, 48, used a stick to search undergrowth close to where he was last seen, saying: “I’ve got to try and find him.”

    Nicola and Corrie's brother Darroch were joined by 40 volunteers and search and rescue experts from across four counties.

    Five cadaver dogs, a drone team and 14 specialist 4x4s took part in the search which was paid for through crowdfunding.

    But the eight hour search of fields, woodland and tracks failed to find any trace of Corrie, 23, who disappeared after a night out almost four months ago in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk on September 24.

    Andy King, chair of Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue, who headed up the team, said: “We’re now looking at areas that if something had happened to Corrie and there was foul play and you had to get rid of him, put him in the back of a car, these are areas where you could go discreetly park up and dispose of a body reasonably easily.”

    “We’re working on the theory that he’s been hit by a vehicle and somebody has panicked and rather than taking him to hospital somebody has disposed of the body.

    “Were searching places that somebody could drive to in the early hours of the morning.”

    Last week Mrs Urquhart revealed her son and his girlfriend April Oliver were members of Fab Swingers- a hook-up website.

    Police are investigating whether his use of sex and dating websites may be linked to his disappearance.

    Missing Corrie McKeague: Persistent Mother leads 100-man fleet in search for RAF soldier

    Nicola Urquhart trawled five square miles of fields, woodland and tracks for clues.

    Five dogs, trained to sniff out bodies, were drafted in, along with drones equipped with cameras.

    The area was mapped out by specialist investigators near the spot where Corrie’s mobile phone signal was last picked up in Barton Mills, Suffolk.

    But the search was called off last night after eight hours.

    Nicola, 48, from Dunfermline, Fife, said: “In my head, I have to think there is a chance he could be out there and being held against his will and that he might come back alive. But searching like this is hard because I know I am looking for a body.

    A man arrested over the disappearance of RAF gunner Corrie McKeague has been released on bail, Suffolk Police said.

    The 26-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice, before being released to answer bail in April.

    He is not the driver of a bin lorry which collected refuse from the area where Mr McKeague was last seen and he is not a relative of Mr McKeague, police added.

    Suffolk Constabulary said the man had been questioned over "information provided to the investigation".

    Mr McKeague, 23, from Fife, vanished on a night out with friends on September 24 in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

    The last CCTV sighting of Mr McKeague showed him walking from a shop doorway and into a horseshoe-shaped area in Brentgovel Street, with no sign of him emerging.

    CCTV shows a waste lorry made a collection in the area shortly after the last confirmed sighting and the vehicle's route appeared to coincide with the movements of Mr McKeague's phone, but police said its load weighed less than 33lb (15kg) and forensic examinations found no trace of him in the lorry.

    However, preparations are being made to search a landfill site in Milton in the next week.

    Work has started to move some bulk material and build access routes to allow the search to get under way.

    Detective Superintendent Katie Elliott said: "We are continuing to make progress on the investigation and we will be starting the landfill site search as soon as the preparatory work is complete.

    "We have been carrying out a lot of inquiries behind the scenes and our work continues to find the truth about what happened to Corrie."

    Corrie Mckeague: Missing airman landfill search begins

    Detectives investigating the disappearance of Corrie Mckeague have started a search of a landfill site.

    The 23-year-old airman, from Dunfermline in Fife, vanished while on a night out with friends in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, in September.

    A bin lorry collected refuse a short time later from the area the RAF Honington gunner was last seen.

    Suffolk Police said trawling through the landfill site in Milton, near Cambridge, could take up to 10 weeks.

    Police can confirm that a young woman who was one of two remaining people seen on foot in the area where Corrie McKeague was last seen has been spoken to by officers.

    The woman had been seen on CCTV in the Brentgovel Street area of Bury St Edmunds around 5.15am – 5.20am on Saturday 24 September and officers had been making appeals to trace her, along with an older gentleman who has yet to be traced.

    She has now been spoken to and has confirmed she is the person in the images but she has not been able to add anything further to assist the investigation.

    Officers are now in the fourth week of work at a landfill site in Milton in Cambridgeshire and have now been through around 1,000 tonnes of waste material in the search.

    The search for missing airman Corrie Mckeague is set to be expanded after weeks of looking through landfill failed to find any trace of his body.

    Mr Mckeague, 23, has not been seen since a night out in Bury St Edmunds last September, when CCTV showed him entering a bin loading bay.

    Police have so far spent nine weeks searching a Cambridge landfill site for any sign of the RAF Honington gunner.

    Earlier, it was revealed the search had so far cost more than £1m.

    The investigation into Mr Mckeague's disappearance is one of the most expensive undertaken by Suffolk Police, the Cambridge News reported.

    On Friday afternoon Suffolk Police said officers searching the landfill had been through all the rubbish from the location and time he disappeared.

    "However, towards the edges of the area it has also been noticed that the waste may have naturally shifted from the original deposition area," the force said.

    "Police are expanding the search parameters to take this into account."
