Suffolk Police – 28th September

Suffolk Police are continuing to appeal for help to trace missing 23-year-old Corrie McKeague who was last seen in Bury St Edmunds in the early hours of Saturday.

Mr McKeague, an RAF serviceman, had been on a night out in Bury St Edmunds and was last seen in Brentgovel Street around 3.20am on Saturday, 24 September. He has not been seen or been in contact with anyone since, which is out-of-character.

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

Since the missing report police have made numerous enquiries including talking with friends and family, checking with local taxi firms and working to identify CCTV that may help piece together which direction he went in from Brentgovel Street.

Police are continuing to review CCTV in a bid to trace his movements and specialist search officers have been out in the area between Honington and Bury St Edmunds to look for him, checking possible routes between the two locations.

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, on base at RAF Honington. Over the past 48 hours the National Police Air Service helicopter has been up assisting with searches in the area and Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue have also been helping.

Suffolk officers are liaising with the RAF and Mr McKeague’s family and are asking anyone who may have information that may assist 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 shirt and white jeans or trousers at the time he was last seen.

As time passes police are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare and officers 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
