Missing Corrie case discussed in Parliament

Corrie went missing in September

The Ministry of Defence will do "everything we possibly can" in the searchfor missing serviceman Corrie McKeague, a minister has said.

Defence minister Mike Penning said everyone in his department wanted the23-year-old, missing since September, to "come home safely".

The RAF gunner, from Fife, vanished on a night out with friends on September 24 in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

Labour MP and former paratrooper Dan Jarvis raised Mr McKeague's plight in the Commons at defence questions.

Mr Penning paid tribute to the work of Bury St Edmunds MP Jo Churchill: "She has done absolutely diligent work in Bury St Edmunds to make sure the local community know what's going on.

"We all want him to come home safely, and I'm sure the MoD will do everything we possibly can."
