Suffolk Police – 3rd October

Police are continuing to appeal for help to trace 23-year-old missing man Corrie McKeague.

Searches by Suffolk Police, RAF personnel, Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue, and the National Police Air Service helicopter have continued over the weekend, and checks were carried out in Bury St Edmunds a week on from his disappearance, but these have not revealed any new information as to his whereabouts at this time.

Analysis of mobile phone data shows his phone moved between Bury and Barton Mills on the morning of his disappearance. The work shows the phone was in Bury St Edmunds early on Saturday 24 September and but then moved to the Barton Mills area. It doesn’t move after this and has not been used since. This phone has not been found at this time.

Police are looking at what happened but are exploring the possibility that the phone may have been lost or discarded as the timings of the movement has been found to coincide with that of a bin lorry that is known to have travelled between the locations at the time. The bin lorry has been seized for examination.

The weight of the pick-up has been analysed at it appears the weight of the load was under 15kg – so it is not thought that Corrie was with the phone, however searches are being carried out between Bury and Barton Mills.

Anyone who may have seen or heard from him since the early hours of last Saturday is being asked to get in touch as a matter of urgency.

If you saw him or have any information about where he is now please contact the duty sergeant at Bury St Edmunds by dialling Suffolk Police on 01473 782019.
