A search of woodland near Thetford organised by the family of missing Corrie McKeague hasn't turned up any new leads.

Volunteers joined the Suffolk Lowland Rescue team and managed to cover four of their six planned areas.

They'll now talk to the family about covering more land in the New year. Corrie has been missing now for almost 3 months, he disappeared after a night out in Bury St Edmunds on September 24th.

"Overall the search is considered as being successful, we've searched and cleared off many areas. It was logistically challenging, we had six areas and we cleared off four, with two others proving tricky under foot, we think those were 50% cleared. The team leaders are happy the volunteers searched well."
