Suffolk Police – 14th October

Police investigating the disappearance of 23-year-old Corrie McKeague continue to carry out work to locate him.

Three weeks on since he went missing detectives are making extensive enquiries and searches are ongoing.

Officers at this stage still do not have a positive sighting of Corrie on CCTV after 3.20am on Saturday 24 September in the Brentgovel Street area of Bury St Edmunds and the viewing of footage is being systematically broadened out to explore all possibilities.

Although a number of people who were in the area around this time have been identified via CCTV, and individuals coming to police, there remain a number who have not yet come forward and detectives continue to appeal for them to get in touch as work continues to identify them.

This weekend further searches will be carried out by SULSAR and NSARDA (Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue & the National Search and Rescue Dog Association). This work will again focus on areas around the A1101.

Police are also asking local residents, businesses and landowners across the Bury St Edmunds, Barton Mills and Honington area to check any outbuildings and property in the ongoing bid to find Corrie.

Anyone who may have been out in Bury St Edmunds between 3am and 6am on Saturday 24 September or anyone with information that may assist is urged to please call the incident room on 01473 782019.

Following speculation around the discovery of the body of a man in a suitcase in a layby in Derbyshire, Suffolk Police can confirm officers have been in contact with Derbyshire Constabulary and have confirmed that the body found is not that of Corrie McKeague.

The missing person enquiry to trace Corrie continues.
