Corrie McKeague, 23, went missing after a night out last September 24. Last seen at 3.25am in a village with CCTV cameras. He was reported missing when he failed to turn up at his base, RAF Honington, 48 hours later.

Mobile phone records trace his movement 8-miles to a village. But no sign of a body despite searches in forests and roads.

May he RIP!
Easy pissed target so vulnerable and ideal for predator lurking.
So he traveled and where is phone was traced to is probably where he died. And if rural then he's probably buried.
Offered lift and killed (maybe sex connotation)
The guy/s that did this have done it before!

This is one of the most troubling cases of recent times, if only for the fact that the circumstances of his disappearance are so strange. Yes, he was somewhat drunk, but the road he walked down last was a dead end, a yard with no through access what so ever. Not only was he not seen again after entering this area, but no one was seen entering or leaving that area who might have been a potential suspect in his kidnap or murder, whichever the case might turn out to be. This is, for all that there is no locked door involved, somewhat akin to a locked room mystery.

The problem is that the entrance to this area, the only entrance to the area, is monitored by CCTV, and shows him, and him alone, go down that passage, into that yard. No one follows him, no one is skulking around. There is no blood evidence that has been reported, there was no sign of a struggle that we have heard of. It is literally as if he vanished. That is HIGHLY unusual, and with respect to RP2SticksOfDynamite's comment about a predator... predators pick weak prey. Servicemen such as Corrie McKeague, even when hammered, represent a tougher target than regular citizenry to a predator. He would have put up some form of struggle, would have been, even drunk, more spatially and situationally aware than your average person in the same circumstance, would have been harder to ambush without there having been some trace of it. Scuff marks on the ground, a fresh dent in a bin, a scrap of skin on a wall, something to indicate that something had occurred.

But nothing. Not a thing. This is unheard of. People disappear from places all the time, but it is HIGHLY unusual for someone to disappear from a location with one entrance and exit, a monitored entrance and exit, without leaving a single trace. To say that this case is out of the ordinary is understating the issue to a legendary degree. Then you have the issue of the movement of his phone. How did it get from the yard in which he was last seen, to the village? A very strange case indeed.

just my opinion - but if it was a deliberate act of criminality then is most probable that McKeagues phone left bury st edmonds in a different direction to him or his corpse

AWOL is something no-one seems to mention? Bad for morale maybe.

Statistically the amount of people kidnapped/murdered in the UK is minimal compared to the amount of servicemen that go absent without leave.

This is a 2008 article that mentions more than 11,000 cases of soldiers going on the run have been logged since the Iraq conflict began in 2003.

Its also worth pointing out, that getting out of that yard without being seen, although far from impossible under ones own power, especially with military training which includes vertical assent of walls, fences, buildings and so on (as a basic skill familiar to virtually all military branches), would STILL leave traces. The forensics team that investigated the site, in order to rule out an AWOL situation, would have had to have swabbed, black lit, and otherwise examined in detail, every single surface, vertical, horizontal or otherwise, for a trace of the fellow. If he had climbed up a wall or fence, there would be a trace. If he had climbed up a building, there would be a trace. If he had broken into or otherwise used any of the potential access points to buildings around the yard, there would be a trace.

Any google pics of the yard.?

I have been following this strange case with the updates from the BBC.
This first link has a video.

RAF Honington reported Mr Mckeague's disappearance to police on Monday, 26 September when he did not turn up to parade at 11:30 BST. The base would ordinarily report a serviceman AWOL but Mrs Urquhart said he was treated as a missing person straight away. She said this was partly because of heightened security after the attempted abduction of a serviceman close to RAF Marham in Norfolk in July, and also because Mr Mckeague's disappearance was "so out of character". Police first informed the media of his disappearance on Tuesday, 27 September and released CCTV footage of him in Brentgovel Street the next day. Here's what has happened since:
4 October: It is revealed that his mobile phone had been tracked moving 12 miles (19km) away to Barton Mills hours after he was last seen.
21 October: Further footage is released, showing his last confirmed sighting. 24 October: A driver reports seeing a man walking near the Hollow Road industrial estate on the day Mr Mckeague disappeared.
15 November: Part of the A14 near Bury St Edmunds is closed while police carry out a roadside search.
5 December: His grandparents Mary and Oliver Mckeague offer a "five-figure" reward for information leading to his discovery.
8 December: A crowdfunding campaign to hire a private investigator to search for Mr Mckeague raises £20,000 within two days and police release CCTV footage of 10 people they want to speak to.
7 December: Mr Mckeague's mother Mrs Urquhart offers a £50,000 reward, made possible by an anonymous local business couple.
9 December: Mrs Urquhart says she has "lost faith" in police over their search for her son. 16 December: Outgoing RAF Honington commander Gp Capt Mick Smeath speaks of Mr Mckeague's friends' hopes that he will be found.
17 December: A search organised by Mrs Urquhart takes place at an area of forest near RAF Honington.
20 December: Mr Mckeague's uncle Tony Wringe expresses anger over a seemingly bogus fundraising website set up in his nephew's name. More than 6,000 hours have been spent searching for Mr Mckeague and thousands of frames of CCTV footage trawled through. ( Local police link all previous Police releases at the page bottom )

Its not unusual for people to shall we say have had enough and desire a new identity, its not that hard as we all know everythings for sale if the price is right.

Hope he's alright and safe and thats the main thing but after 3 months or so not being able to send a 'i'm ok so don't worry' message is a bit strange.

There is a great site (Websleuths) that has examined every aspect of this case. There are a good dozen feasible explanations, all of which have merits to one degree or another.

There is a reason that we are not being given a clear view of the six people of interest and it may be because of angry reprisal's against a certain community and misguided political correctness by the part of certain political and legal authority's. e-terror-attack.html

This mean's he COULD still be alive but held in captivity and in danger every second that he may be used in one of there propaganda pieces.

I have followed this for a while and the thing i dont get is, the 'Horseshoe' was supposed to be impossible to get out of without being seen on CCTV, even the police said it had been tested, and that nobody could physically leave that area without being seen on camera. The only way to have got out was in a vehicle..

NOW, his mum walks a route that COULD avoid the camera. So which is it?

Also, the local tip was never searched even though the binmen had been, and the mobile signal apparently came from that area. Too many contradictory pieces of information and a bit of police incompetence imo.

Questions in my mind after watching the video,

1) Do the people who were not supposed to be in the building with the white gate really know something? How many times have they been interviewed?

2) Could he have been murdered in one of the buildings and his body removed later in the day/next day in a different vehicle to the 4 known at the time? Maybe wrapped in plastic sheeting or something that would look normal to a passer-by, eg a box/suitcase, when being carried out to a vehicle?

3) Could his body have been put in the sewerage system through a man-hole in the horseshoe? Would this mask the smell so that the dogs would'nt be able to pick up a scent?

4) Surely the back of the phone case could be a clue, not for fingerprints etc, but i'm sure his mum or girlfriend would know what kind of phone he had?

With his mum working for the police, i am really surprised at how the police have not put more effort in to the case. Also, AWOL or not, the MOD should also have put more effort in to find one of their own, especially with the threat of an attempted abduction of an RAF serviceman at knife point back in July 2016.

He went to an area containing bins, he was drunk and his phone was traced along the route the bin lorry would take. The simplest explanation would be he got into one of the bins and was killed and transported with the rubbish, it would also account for him not being seen on cctv leaving the area. People have died after sleeping in large bins before.

When this first happened his mother said he 'would trust anyone' which is worrying and apparently he was signed up to 'swingers' websites. There are also reports of him buying a lot of take away food that another explanation is that he met someone and went off with them, in that case unless it was the bin lorry driver he hooked up with, the phone tracing would be coincidental and the phone was possibly thrown in a bin before he was taken somewhere?

a reply to: DrHammondStoat

the bins that were collected from that area were " pay by weight " - so he could not hsave been INSIDE a bin - as none had the logged rubbish mass to cover a stowaway

that said - i have not seen any compelling argument for why he would have willingly climbed into // stowed away on a bin wagon

but the notion that his phone was thrown in a bin has merit

I would like to add or amend something to my earlier comment, I am prejudiced as can be seen by my earlier opinion and so it is most definitely worth noting that this young guy was also using a swingers dating site (Swingers are people whom meet up often amorously for sex with stranger's obviously a sick thin in my opinion) so it is all too possible that since dangerous people also use such site's that he may well have met up with one such character.

Now obviously the NEWS is riddled with story's about woman being killed after meeting up with someone on an internet dating site or often raped and beaten, some of these site's have even been sued as after all they advertise there wares like any merchant with little or no regard for those they bring together.

But in the case of this young service man we simply do not have enough to make a judgement and if there is more evidence as I am certain that there is the Police are keeping it under there hats for now.

At this stage all we can really do is hope that there is still hope but every year.
