Suffolk Police – 12th October

The National Search and Rescue Dog Association have again been out searching along a route parallel to the A134 between Honington and Fornham St Martin this morning as part of continuing work to locate missing 23-year-old Corrie McKeague.

Police have ongoing enquiries to locate Corrie however at this stage there remains no positive sighting of him after 3.20am on Saturday 24 September.

Detectives are keeping an open mind as to what may have happened to him, with a large number of enquiries being carried out to try to find him. At this stage nothing can be ruled out and police are still looking at whether Corrie attempted to walk home but wasn’t captured on CCTV, whether he may have willingly gone with someone else, perhaps in a vehicle, or that something else may have happened.

There continues to be no evidence of criminality and nothing to indicate any third party involvement, however this continues to be subject to the ongoing investigation.

With this in mind hundreds of hours of CCTV footage have already been viewed and officers have been out on the ground seeing if any further images can be gathered. There is not 100% coverage in the area and therefore police are broadening the search for CCTV images and continuing to view the footage already collected.

Police and Corrie’s family are thanking all of those who have supported and assisted with the enquiry to date, including the RAF, Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue, the National Search and Rescue Dog Association, the National Police Air Service helicopter, members of the public who have come forward and who have circulated messages, businesses and organisations displaying the missing poster and landowners who have checked their fields in the bid to find Corrie.

Although dozens of people have been traced and spoken to, work is ongoing to talk to those who know Corrie, those seen on CCTV and those who have called in with information that may be relevant to the enquiry.

Police continue to ask anyone who spoke to Corrie on the evening of Friday 23 September or the morning of Saturday 24 September, or anyone with information that may help locate him, to come forward.

Corrie was dressed in noticeable light clothing – a pink shirt and white jeans – and is known to have been friendly and outgoing, chatting to people in the area in his distinctive Scottish accent.

If you interacted with him on Friday night into Saturday morning please get in touch as you may have a small piece of information that may help the investigation.

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