Potential witnesses sought in connection with the disappearance of RAF airman Corrie McKeague in Suffolk have been identified following an anniversary appeal.
Police investigating the disappearance of Corrie have confirmed that four of the individuals pictured on the CCTV images published yesterday have now been identified.
One of the men pictured came forward yesterday evening to identify himself following an appeal, which was publicised in this newspaper. He has also given the names of the three friends he was out with on the night and whose images were also issued.
A spokesman for Suffolk police said: “From speaking with this male police understand there was a brief interaction ending on friendly terms with Corrie and as there was no further contact after this they are not considered to be significant to the investigation as was stated yesterday.
“The group of four knew Corrie and joked with him before they went their separate ways.
“Police will speak to the three other males in due course.”
Police are also able to confirm that the male and female in two other images released yesterday have come forward and identified themselves. The two people will also be spoken to in due course.
Corrie, from Dunfermline in Fife, disappeared after going out in Bury St Edmunds with friends from RAF Honington, where he was based. The airman whose 24th birthday was on Saturday, September 16, was last seen on CCTV at 3.24am on September 24, 2016, in the town centre.
