The mother of missing airman Corrie McKeague has revealed that search dogs specially trained to find bodies are being used to look for him in Bury St Edmunds.

Corrie vanished on September 24 last year following a night out with friends in the town.

His mum Nicola Urquhart has told the Find Corrie Facebook page that police have authorised searchers from Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue to use the specially-trained dogs in the town centre.

She posted the comment after receiving inquiries from concerned supporters. She says she'll update the page when the search is complete and has thanked everyone for their support.

It's with mixed emotions that I can let you know the police have authorised SULSAR to use Cadaver dogs in specific areas in the town centre, i will update you once this has been completed.
