Suffol Police – 11th October

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.
