The mother of missing RAF gunner Corrie McKeague has said he had an account on a swingers' website and police confirmed this was part of the investigation into his disappearance.

Corrie McKeague, 23, from Fife, vanished while on a night out with friends on September 24 in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.

In a Facebook post, his mother Nicola Urquhart said Corrie had an account on the Fab Swingers website.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: ''Police are aware of the social media and websites Corrie was using and this is part of our investigation.

''We will not be commenting further at this time.''

Last week, it was revealed that April Oliver, 21, the girlfriend of Mr McKeague, was expecting a child due in late spring or early summer.

Miss Oliver said Mr McKeague did not know about the pregnancy.

The pair had been together for about five months after meeting on a dating site.

Mr McKeague, a gunner and team medic, based at RAF Honington, was separated from friends while leaving the Flex nightclub on St Andrews Street South.

He was last seen in Bury St Edmunds town centre on CCTV at 3.25am, wearing a light pink Ralph Lauren shirt, white jeans and brown suede Timberland boots with light soles.

The last sighting shows him walking from a shop doorway and into a horseshoe-shaped area in Brentgovel Street, with no sign of him emerging.

Officers combing through CCTV released images last week are still seeking to identify two people - a cyclist in one CCTV image and an older man in the second CCTV still.

Three potential witnesses have been identified following an appeal.

All of the footage was filmed 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.

Police said the vast majority of those in the area sought from CCTV have been identified, traced and spoken to.
