Four men have come forward after police released CCTV images of people they want to speak to almost a year after Corrie McKeague vanished.

All four contacted Corrie's mother Nicola via the appeal page for the missing airman.

Corrie will have been missing for a year on September 24th

Suffolk Police say they understand there was a brief interaction ending on friendly terms with Corrie and as there was no further contact after this they are not considered to be significant to the investigation. The group of four knew Corrie and joked with him before they went their separate ways.

Another man and woman have also come forward after police issued CCTV images. Detectives say they will also be spoken to in due course.

Corrie was 23-years-old when he vanished after a night out with friends in Bury St Edmunds 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. The pod would be in Brentgovel Street, where Corrie was last seen at 3.25am.

Our thoughts are with Corrie's family and friends 12 months on from his disappearance. 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 exactly what happened to him. We have always wanted to provide answers to Corrie's family about what happened to him.

The search for Corrie remains an active investigation. 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. We would ask the public to call us if they have fresh information that may be of benefit to the investigation.
