Partner of missing RAF serviceman has baby
The partner of a missing RAF serviceman, Corrie McKeague, has given birth to a baby girl, she announced on Facebook. April-Louise Oliver posted a picture yesterday of her cradling the newborn in a hospital bed. She did not say when the baby was born.
McKeague, from Fife, vanished on a night out with friends on 24 September in Bury St Edmunds. He was last seen in the early hours on CCTV. Police have been searching a landfill site for more than 14 weeks, and have sifted through 4,000 tonnes of waste.
Oliver, from Downham Market, Norfolk, said she discovered she was pregnant with McKeague’s child two weeks after he disappeared. At the time she said: “It’s incredibly difficult to bounce my head from the excitement of a new baby to what we’re actually trying to focus on, which is finding Corrie.”
In May, she wrote on Facebook: “Your daddy would be proud of you my little one and would love you as much as I do.”
