An online petition calling on Suffolk Police to re-start their search of a landfill site to find the body of Corrie McKeague now has more than 25,000 signatures.

Supporters of the family set up the webpage after the force announced on Friday it had found no sign of the missing RAF airmen and officers had ended their finger-tip search at Milton in Cambridgeshire.

In just three days it has already attracted more than 25,000 signatories.

Among the reasons given for signing were:

"They have to keep looking to give this poor family peace of mind."

– Naomi M.

"You cannot just simply stop, after saying you believe Corrie is there...the family need answers."

– Debbie H.

"Why start a search then not finish? They say he is in there so find him and give his family some sort of closure."

– Hayley C.
