Corrie McKeague: two years since airman disappeared

Corrie disappeared after a night out on 24 September 2016.

The mother of missing Corrie McKeague says many questions remain unanswered- exactly two years after he disappeared.

The airman, who was based at RAF Honington, was last seen after a night out with friends in Bury St Edmunds on September 24 2016. He was 23-years-old at the time of his disappearance.

Despite numerous police appeals and a multi-million pound investigation, including a 27 week search of a landfill site in Milton in Cambridgeshire, there has still be no trace of him. As a result Suffolk Police stood down the search for Corrie earlier this year. The investigation is now being handled by a cold case team.

Nicola Urqhart says Corrie could have walked away from the 'horseshoe' area where he was last seen.

Corrie McKeague's mother has now said she believes her son may not have climbed into a wheelie bin and would therefore not be buried in a landfill site.

Nicola Urquhart believes a lack of CCTV could mean Corrie could have walked from the scene.

However Corrie's father claims his son is "no longer missing" and that he now knows what happened to him.

In an emotional post on Facebook, Martin McKeague wrote that his family are certain Corrie is "somewhere in the Suffolk waste disposal system" and that his remains are "essentially irretrievable."
