Missing RAF Serviceman Corrie McKeague

The mother of missing RAF gunner Corrie McKeague will retrace his last known steps a year after his disappearance.

The airman, who was based at RAF Honington, was last seen on September 24, 2016, following a night out in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. 

Nicola Urquhart, McKeague's mother, plans to travel with several other family members to the town and hope that their walk will “jog someone’s memory”, helping to piece together what happened to the serviceman.

Speaking on Facebook, Urquhart wrote:

“Now is not the time to give up and sit quietly somewhere to remember Corrie. Information is what will find Corrie; we desperately need you for this.”

The family members will walk the route taken by McKeague on his night out, from the bar which he started the night in, to the last movements captured on CCTV in the early hours of the morning.

His mother went on to explain:

"This is being done in the hope that we may jog someone's memory that may have been out that night or has heard something since, or that, after seeing the route and hearing the facts, may ask a question we have not thought of yet.”

Suffolk Police still believe that his remains are on a landfill site at Milton, Cambridgeshire.

However, after 20 weeks the search was called off.

Since that time his family members have not given up on finding the missing RAF gunner.

His father, Martin McKeague reportedly continued searching the site after the police ceased their operation on the landfill.
