The heartbroken mum of missing airman Corrie McKeague is preparing to make an emotional visit to the tip where he is believed to be buried.
Devastated Nicola Urquhart, 48, will be joined by her husband and Corrie’s brothers Makeyan, 25, and Darroch, 21.
A source told the Sunday People: “There are plans for Nicola to visit the search site.
“It won’t be easy for her or the boys but it’s where they now believe Corrie is and they want to go there so they can feel close to him.”
Corrie, a 23-year-old gunner based at RAF Honington in Suffolk, went missing after a night out in Bury St Edmunds early on September 24.
The Scot, whose girlfriend April is pregnant, was last seen entering a cul-de-sac.
Police fear he somehow ended up in a bin that was picked up by a waste lorry.
He may then have been crushed before being dumped in landfill at Milton, Cambs.
Signals from Corrie’s phone matched the vehicle’s journey. Officers started searching the 10,000 sq ft site on Monday.
Meanwhile, Suffolk Police are investigating a referral from the Independent Police Complaints Commission over an arrest linked to the case on March 1.
The 26-year-old man involved will face no further action after being quizzed.
