Work is continuing to locate 23-year-old Corrie McKeague who went missing in the early hours of Saturday 24 September.
As a result of extensive work by detectives over the weekend, police have now been able to identify a number of individuals who were seen on CCTV in the area at the time. This includes the three young people police made appeals to trace last week. Police are looking to speak to all of these individuals, with the aim of gathering any further information that may help locate Corrie. At this stage all of those identified are being treated as potential witnesses.
Officers are continuing to ask anyone who was in the area in the early hours of Saturday 24 to come forward.
There isn’t 100% CCTV coverage in the area and officers are continuing to go through hundreds of hours of footage to try to piece together what may have happened to Corrie, to see if there are any further images of him in Bury St Edmunds.
Police are continuing to keep 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 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.
Further searches are being carried out along the A1101 today.
Suffolk Police have also liaised with national experts to ensure everything possible is being done through searches and other work to find him.
Police are thanking all those businesses who have put up a poster to help locate Corrie and are continuing to ask anyone with information to call the incident room on 01473 782019.
