New appeal over missing RAF gunner one year on

By Sam Russell

Detectives investigating the disappearance of RAF gunner Corrie McKeague have released CCTV images of people they want to speak to almost a year after he disappeared.

Mr McKeague was 23 years old when he vanished after a night out with friends in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, on September 24 last year.

Sunday marks a year to the day since he disappeared and Suffolk Police said there would be a police pod in the town this weekend for people to speak to officers with new information. It will be in Brentgovel Street, where Mr McKeague was last seen at 3.25am.

Police have also released CCTV images of people they believe may have had some interaction with Mr McKeague on the night he went missing.

Officers have stressed the people are not suspects, they are not key witnesses and have no direct link with Mr McKeague, but may have information that could help them understand what happened to him.

Detective Superintendent Katie Elliott said: "It is fair to say that a year on from him going missing, we never thought we would be in this position of not yet locating Corrie or establishing what happened to him."

No trace of Mr McKeague, from Fife in Scotland but based at RAF Honington in Suffolk, was found during a 20-week search of a landfill site at Milton in Cambridgeshire.

His mother Nicola Urquhart wrote on Facebook that she would retrace his final steps this weekend in a bid to "jog someone's memory".
