Published

on

Corrie McKeague was last seen on the 24th September 2016 at 03.25 in Brentgoval Street, Bury ST Edmunds. He has not been seen since.

Aged 23 Corrie was posted at RAF Honington. Corrie had gone on a night out with friends he was wearing a distinctive pink Ralph Lauren shirt, white trousers and brown Timberland boots.

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.

If you have any information that would assist in the search to find Corrie there is a £50K reward if you have any information at all people are urged to text or call in confidence 07379 333 024.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.

Awww Cleveland Police have just recruited these four legged friends

Published

on

Put your paws up for our two new recruits, Maggie and Skye who are the newest and youngest additions to the Force. At just 12 weeks old, the two English Springer Spaniels will soon begin their training to become Specialist Search Dogs.

Dog Trainer Constable Darren Gobie and Police Constable Chris Lambert are the lucky handlers of the pups. PC Lambert teamed up with a year 4 class at Myton Park School in Ingleby Barwick and allowed them to choose Skye’s name.

Chris and Skye will regularly visit the school over the next 18 months to allow them to follow her training process.

Speaking of the collaboration with the school, PC Lambert said: “I thought it would be a great idea to tie in with a school in the local community.

Recruiting new dogs is a huge deal and it’s an exciting and educational opportunity for the pupils to meet a police dog, choose her name collectively as a team and to better understand the training process for police dogs, and police roles in general.

The children were delighted to participate in this and I am sure they will all build a lovely bond with Skye over the coming months.”

PC Lambert, along with partner agencies will also be using the visits to the school to deliver lessons on internet safety and safety around animals.

The officers and the dogs will need to work very closely as team throughout the training process to build a special bond together.

Training is both mentally and physically challenging for both the dogs and handlers, as every programme must be passed to qualify.

Specialist dogs are used to detect a range of things with their highly developed sense of smell such as money, explosives, drugs and firearms.

They are also trained to work in public places including licenses premises to search for people in possession of narcotics.
