Corrie McKeague: images released of four men from night of disappearance

Police believe group could help them find out what happened to soldier who vanished in Bury St Edmunds last year

New CCTV images have been released of four men believed to have interacted with the missing RAF airman Corrie McKeague on the night he disappeared.

McKeague was last seen in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, on 24 September last year[2], entering a bin loading bay known as the Horseshoe at about 3.25am.

Although the four men are not being treated as suspects or key witnesses, police have appealed for all those in the CCTV images to come forward. Officers believe the group might have information that could help police understand what happened to McKeague, 24.

One of the men, seen in the entrance to Flex nightclub, identified himself on Thursday. Suffolk police hope to speak to the other men in due course.

A Suffolk police spokesman said there had been a “brief interaction ending on friendly terms” and that “the group of four knew Corrie and joked with him before they went their separate ways”.

McKeague, from Fife, Scotland, had been “known to sleep in rubbish” while on a night out, according to police.

The movement of McKeague’s phone signal matched that of a bin lorry that picked up rubbish from bins in the Horseshoe loading area. Detectives traced the RAF gunner’s mobile phone signal to Barton Mills, about 14 miles away, shortly after 4am. However, an error in reporting the weight of the truck meant that police initially did not search the landfill.

Police subsequently conducted a 20-week search of the site but found no remains.

Suffolk constabulary has already spent more than £1m investigating McKeague’s disappearance, with Sunday marking a year since he vanished. This weekend, police will set up a pod on Brentgovel Street in Bury St Edmunds for people to come forward with information.

Katie Elliott, the deputy superintendent, said the search for Corrie remained an active investigation.

‘We have deliberately placed the police pod on Brentgovel Street as we know this is the route Corrie took on that evening,” she said.

“We would appeal directly to the public who were out in Bury St Edmunds exactly 12 months ago on the night he went missing and, maybe a year on, are once again back in the town centre this weekend.”

Nicola Urquhart, McKeague’s mother, responded to the latest information on Facebook, saying that that she will retrace her son’s final steps this weekend in a bid to “jog someone’s memory” and solve the case.
