Police say they now have information on all five people in CCTV pictures Corrie McKeague search police issued on Friday have been identified.
Officers combing through more than 1,000 hours of CCTV have located images of individuals, who are believed to be the same people shown in the grainy images previously released but who are still to be identified.
A police spokeswoman said this afternoon that they have a positive identifications on three of the five. They still need to identify the elderly man in image 26 and the cyclist pictured talking to a car driver in image 8.
Corrie’s mum Nicola Urquhart told the Find Corrie Facebook group’s followers today (Monday): “You are all amazing. Thank you so very much for all your help in identifying everyone.”
Anyone who thinks they know the remaining people is asked to call the police incident room number (below) and not post information or names on Facebook where it could be overlooked.
All Friday’s images show individuals in Bury St Edmunds town centre between 3.15am and 5.20am, close to the time of the last confirmed sighting of Corrie at 3.25am in Brentgovel Street ‘horseshoe’ on Saturday September 24.
Following previous appeals the vast majority of those in the area sought from CCTV have been identified, traced and spoken to by police officers, but there remain a small number who have not yet been identified.
Police say all of those pictured are potential witnesses who may have information that can assist and detectives are asking them or anyone who knows who they are to get in touch.
Officers would also like to thank all those who have called in or viewed images at the police pod in Bury and given names, and this information continues to be followed up.
Detective Superintendent Katie Elliott said; “Our extensive enquiries are ongoing with continuing CCTV analysis, searches and background work looking into all aspects of Corrie’s life.
“As part of our ongoing work to find him, the police team have trawled through over 1,000 hours of CCTV footage to search for any images of Corrie but also to identify all of those who were in the vicinity around the time of the last confirmed sighting to see if there’s anything they may be able to tell us that may help.
“It remains important that we identify everyone who was in the area of the ‘horseshoe’ in the early hours of Saturday 24 September, as someone could, unknowingly, hold a clue that can help us find Corrie.
“It should be stressed that these are just potential witnesses and it’s possible they may not be aware that they may be able to assist.
“We need to identify all those on the released images as we are trying to rule out all possibilities and therefore we do need to speak to you.”
