Police searching for missing RAF gunner Corrie McKeague are to resume the search of a landfill site in Milton, near Cambridge.

Police who are searching for missing RAF gunner Corrie McKeague have resumed the search of a landfill site in Milton, near Cambridge.

Mckeague aged 23 has been subject to an intense missing person search since he disappeared after a night out in Bury St Edmunds near Suffolk in September 2016.

Police called off a five-month search of the landfill site which called off in July after no evidence of his body was found.

However, police have rechecked information available to them and the investigative team have found that the original search area “is still the location where there was the highest likelihood of finding Corrie”.

With Suffolk police resuming the extended search which is believed will last four to six weeks and will focus on the area next to the site of the previous search.

Mr McKeague, from Fife, Scotland but based at RAF Honington in Suffolk, was last seen on CCTV at 3.25am on September 24, 2016.

Police have confirmed that a bin lorry which was captured on CCTV in Bury St Edmunds around this time took a similar route to which matched the movements of his phone.

The bin lorry linked to his disappearance was initially thought to have collected 11kg (1st 10lb) load, but police said it was later found to be more than 100kg (15st 10lb).

Detective Superintendent Katie Elliott said: “Throughout this rigorous investigation we have remained committed to following all reasonable lines of inquiry in our endeavours to discover what has happened to Corrie.

“Confronted by the variances in the way waste can be deposited and through further investigation, we cannot discount the possibility Corrie may be elsewhere in Cell 22.

“Therefore, we believe our decision to extend the search area is the correct one.”
