Part­ner of miss­ing RAF ser­vice­man has baby

The Guardian - - NATIONAL - Ni­cola Slaw­son

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.”
