Man arrested in Corrie McKeague case released on bail

A 26-year-old man arrested in connection with the case of missing airman Corrie McKeague has been released on bail.

He was arrested earlier today, Wednesday 1 March, and was taken into custody where he was interviewed on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice.

The man is not the driver of the bin lorry which collected refuse from the area where Corrie was last seen and is not related to Corrie.

Following the interview, he has now been bailed to return to police on April 13, while further enquiries are made.

Police have arrested a 26-year-old man on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice as part of the continuing Corrie McKeague missing person investigation.

The man was arrested earlier today, Wednesday 1 March. He has been taken into custody where he will be interviewed on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice relating to information provided to the investigation.

Police are stressing that the man is not the driver of the bin lorry which collected refuse from the area where Corrie was last seen but officers will not be giving any further details at this time, as work to discover what happened to the 23-year-old RAF serviceman continues.

Work is continuing on a landfill site at Milton ahead of a police search which is now likely to start in the next seven days. Work is being carried out to move a large volume of bulk material and to build access routes to allow the search to get underway.

Police searching for Corrie trace potential witness

Corrie McKeague

Suffolk Police investigating the disappearance of RAF gunner Corrie McKeague have traced a potential witness from CCTV and are searching for two more people.

Mr McKeague, 23, from Fife, vanished while on a night out with friends on September 24 in Bury St Edmundsk.

Suffolk Police have identified a cyclist spotted around the time Mr McKeague was last seen, and are renewing appeals to find an older man and a person seen walking through the Brentgovel Street area of the town at around 5.15am on September 24.<

In another strand to the investigation, Suffolk Police said a landfill site in Milton, Cambridgeshire, would be trawled once the search area has been made safe, with 8,000 tonnes of bulk material removed.<

CCTV shows that a waste lorry made a collection in the area Mr McKeague was last seen shortly after the last confirmed sighting of him.<

The lorry's route appeared to coincide with the movements of Mr McKeague's phone, but police said the vehicle's load weighed less than 33lb (15kg) and forensic examinations found no trace of him in the lorry.

A £50,000 reward for information that helps find missing RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague is due to be withdrawn tomorrow.

The money was put up by an anonymous business couple from Suffolk but so far nothing has come of it.

Corrie hasn't been since September when he disappeared after a night out in Bury St Edmunds.
