Suffolk Police – 21st October – 3rd update

As enquiries continue to trace missing Corrie McKeague, police are releasing details of a further potential witness officers would like to speak to.

Around 1.15am – 1.30am on Saturday 24 September Corrie bought takeaway food at Pizza Mama Mia in St Andrews Street North before walking off towards Brentgovel Street, as seen on the first CCTV images issued by police.

While he was in the takeaway he went to sit with a group of people who have not yet been traced.  This group are sought as witnesses and police need to speak to them. The group included a man described as black, who wore a distinctive black T-shirt with ‘Death’, the Roman numerals ‘LXXVIII’ and the number ‘78’ in large white letters on the rear and a white motif on the front. He appears to be shorter than Corrie, under around 5ft 10ins tall, and had short dark hair. He leaves the takeaway with Corrie, before Corrie is seen on the CCTV walking towards Brentgovel Street on his own.

There is no suggestion that there was any contact after this, however police need to talk to anyone who spoke to Corrie in the hours before he disappeared. At this time this group are the last known to have been in conversation with Corrie.

Officers are asking the group and the man who spoke with Corrie to come forward as potential witnesses – and are asking anyone with information about who they may be to get in touch.

Anyone who may have been out in the Bury St Edmunds, Honington or Barton Mills area between 3am and 6am on Saturday 24 September or anyone with information that may help should call the incident room on 01473 782019.
