MISSING RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague and his girlfriend were members of a swinging club, his mother has confirmed.
Nicola Urquhart last night posted on Facebook that her 23-year-old son and his 21-year-old girlfriend, April Oliver, had accounts on website, Fab Swingers.
Last week April announced she was expecting the RAF gunner’s child who is believed to be due in late spring or early summer.
The couple had been together for around five months after meeting on a dating site and were, according to Mrs Urquhart, both seeing other people.
Corrie, originally from Dunfermline, Fife, has been missing for more than 16 weeks after going on a night out with pals in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
Following a Q & A session last night with Corrie’s brother Darroch, Nicola took to Corrie’s official Facebook page to clarify comments about her son’s private life.
Just hours before the post, an anonymous Reddit user posted a link to Corrie’s swinger page which have since been removed.
Images from Corrie’s “hidden” Fab Swinger profile today emerged, showing he used the username “Mrcm1”.
The page states the 23-year-old joined the site over a year ago and alongside a photograph of Corrie reads: “Hello all, come say hi.”
Further details state the user is looking for couples, both male and female and a female couple and women aged between 18 to 60.
Reviews from other users claim Corrie met up with a 28-year-old woman from the site on April 15 2016 who wrote: “Turned up looking and smelling amazing, didn’t take long for me to get his clothes off and he didn’t disappoint.
Another review from a couple who claim to have met the gunner on July 24, 2015 said: “Great time this afternoon with hot guy. Hot, hot, hot. Wet, wet, wet. We had a good laugh and an amazing time. Thanks. X”
A second couple’s account was set up five months ago for the couple using the same measurements as in Corrie’s single profile.
Alongside a photograph of a girl, dressed in lingerie in a bedroom, it read: “I have my own profile but now a couple so need to get this one used.
“We are a young couple but know what we want. I’m looking for other attractive couples to swap with.”
Addressing speculation over the accounts, Nicola last night said: “April has asked me to post this on the page. Corrie and April were on dating sites, they are young and were enjoying themselves. They were both seeing other people, this has not been hidden.
“April and Corrie had a Fab Swingers account, to the haters, get over it. This is none of your business.
“April could have easily deleted her account as I could have deleted Corrie’s however what was far more important than a little embarrassment was that the police were informed immediately and given every ability to ensure this did not have anything to do with Corrie’s disappearance.
“Which they are still doing, I only hope they have had the time to carry out all investigations.”
She added: “Although, anyone that has just watched Darroch on Facebook live they will see that there are things about Corrie’s life that he wishes people would just leave alone we know it has nothing to do with the investigation and realise I am predominantly feeding the haters.
“Last week April had to publicly tell the world about her private life, something we all tried to keep private for both her and their baby, predominantly at April’s insistence as April’s main concern is finding Corrie.
“Sadly others would not leave her alone and were constantly messaging hateful remarks to us.
“After many long discussions April, her parents and us all felt she was really left with no choice as it was coming out anyway. with our full support we helped this happen.
“So I am back here again providing information about a young couple’s private life as these awful people feel it’s appropriate to cut and paste Aprils photos and post them on here and send them to the press, who sadly the gutter ones will be to happy to oblige.”
Contacted at home for comment, Mrs Urquhart said today “I don’t want to talk” before putting down the phone.
Yesterday, an unknown Reddit user shared Corrie’s Fab Swingers profile before deleting the account it was posted from.
The post was left open and attracted dozens of comments from shocked social media users who questioned whether Corrie had arranged to meet someone from the site on the night he went missing.
Some users speculated that there could be a link between Corrie’s disappearance and his membership of the swingers site.
Another said: “Oh my. So Corrie was a long term member of a swingers site and him and the girlfriend had a joint account too? I’m shocked.”
And one user wrote: “Ah yes and have just found their couple’s one too. Joined five months ago. Last on four months ago but haven’t been verified by anyone so haven’t met anyone as a couple.
“The plot thickens. How long ago did the ‘girlfriend’ say they met?”
Corrie, a gunner and team medic, was last seen on CCTV at 3.25am in Bury St Edmunds town centre.
He was wearing a light pink Ralph Lauren shirt, white jeans and brown suede Timberland boots with light soles and was spotted walking alone, eating takeaway.
Last week Corrie’s uncle, Tony Wringe revealed the family had hired private investigators who were using military software to help with the search.
The new move comes after thousands of kind supporters donated money totalling over £50,000 to help towards search costs.
Since Corrie’s disappearance Suffolk Police has carried out “extensive” investigative work including searching nearby woodland areas and scouring hundreds of hours of CCTV.
However in November, following criticism from Corrie’s uncle, the force admitted they had “no leads”.
On Monday it was revealed that police were bringing in sniffer dogs to search the town where he went missing.
A spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary 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.”
