Corrie was separated from his friend’s in the early hours of Saturday morning after leaving Flex nightclub he walked the short distance to his regular takeaway Pizza Mamma Mia. While he was in the takeaway he seemed very happy and played Rock, Paper, Scissors with a stranger.
At 1.20am Corrie passed a CCTV camera opposite The Grapes Pub on Brentgovel Street and St Johns Street junction. At 3.08am Corrie responded to his last text message he sent and the last time he made contact with anyone.
At 3.25am Corrie got up from the doorway and headed past the junction of St Johns Street down a pathway which leads to Cornhill Walk from here Corrie turns into a loading/refuse collection area behind Greggs shop this being the last confirmed sighting.
Police managed to trace his mobile phone at 3.24am to 4.30am within the Barton Mill area near Mildenhall this is believed to be only at the speed a vehicle could have travelled at due to the distance.
Nicola Urguhart Corrie’s mum has taken to facebook to answer live questions to those who have joined the #FindCorrie appeal.
During the live streaming, Nicola discussed her frustrations during the search for missing Corrie and urges anyone who may have the missing link to come forward.
Referencing the search of the bins within the police investigation and highlighted the area behind the bins that there is a huge area of businesses and empty properties describing the area as ‘massive’ after reviewing drone footage.
Corrie could have easily entered this area Nicola said ‘she had a big problem with this’ as the area has not been forensically searched.
Speaking of lines of inquiries that the family believe are vitally important and believe the police should look at as an urgent line of inquiry.
Door to Door enquiries within the investigation took three weeks to happen and this could have hampered the investigation fearing a lot of evidence could have been lost.
During the live stream it was directly asked if Nicola had lost faith in the police she answered ‘as a serving police officer that her criticisms of the police has never been aimed at individual officers and has always been at the lack of resources available to the officers’
Going on to thank the officers who have spent hours looking and trawling through CCTV images and combed the area.
Nicola urged supporters not to put the police down as this was never her intention, However, there are lines of inquiries that she believes have been overlooked.
- Such a reported incident of three men setting fire to a car just miles away from the area Corrie disappeared.
- RAF Marham incident should be further investigated and not ruled out as a road rage incident.
- Believes two separate sightings with uncanny descriptions from two independent witnesses should be further looked into on the A14.
If you know somebody if something doesn’t feel right please just send me a text on one of the reward numbers even if it’s just a hunch, we will give the information to the police we will look into it as someone does know something.
Nicola urged that she is struggling to have lines of enquiries she would like looked at to be followed.
