She said: “My son has disappeared – so somebody please, if anyone knows anything, get in touch, get in touch with Suffolk Police.She asked Suffolk residents to check their gardens and said her son may have decided to “have a sleep” before making his way home. She said: “Check your gardens, check your own properties please, but leave the proper searching to the police and people who know what they are doing.”SAC McKeague was described as fit and healthy and he had spent the night drinking with RAF comrades. He regularly walked home on his own after a night out drinking and police said he would not have considered the nine mile trek a significant distance.His mother said: “The boys that were with him are not responsible for Corrie. Corrie does the same thing every time he goes out. Once he goes out he is an absolute creature of habit. He will leave absolutely on his own, that’s not unusual.”He will go and get food and if he has to lay down and have a sleep before he goes home then he will. It’s looking more and more suspicious as time goes on that they’re not actually finding himmother Nicola Urquhart An image from CCTV footage of Corrie McKeague in Bury St EdmundsCredit:EPA/SUFFOLK CONSTABULARY Police say searches have now been extended for Corrie McKeague, who was last seen in Bury St Edmunds early on September 24Credit:EPA/SUFFOLK CONSTABULARY The mother of an RAF gunner missing for more than a week after disappearing on a night out drinking has pleaded for local people to check their gardens and properties for him.Senior aircraftman Corrie McKeague of II Sqn RAF Regiment was last seen in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk and is believed to have set out to walk nine miles back to his base.Search teams have since been retracing his possible route back to RAF Honington after he was last seen at around 3am on September 24.
