Suffolk Police – 27th September

Police are growing increasingly concerned for the safety of a 23-year-old man who went missing following a night out in Bury St Edmunds.

Corrie McKeague was last seen in Brentgovel Street in Bury St Edmunds at around 3.20am on Saturday morning, 24 September, and has not been seen or been in contact with anyone since.

He was reported as missing to police yesterday afternoon, Monday 26 September, and since then officers have been conducting enquiries to trace him.

From CCTV in Bury St Edmunds it is believed he briefly slept in a doorway before getting up and moving away – possibly with the aim of walking home several miles away. Today the National Police Air Service helicopter has been up assisting with searches in the area and police are asking anyone who may have seen him in Bury St Edmunds in the early hours of Saturday, or anyone who may have seen him walking out of the area to come forward.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have seen him since, or anyone who may have information about where he is now, and are asking them to get in touch immediately.

Police are also asking dog walkers or anyone who may be out in the countryside around Bury St Edmunds to get in touch if they notice anything unusual and are asking residents to check any outbuildings.

Corrie is described as white, 5ft 10ins tall, of medium build, with short light brown hair. He was wearing a light pink polo shirt and white jeans at the time he was last seen.

Officers are concerned for his welfare and are asking anyone who may have seen Corrie, or anyone who has any information on his whereabouts, to contact the duty sergeant at Bury St Edmunds on 101.
