Delia Smith has helped to publicise the appeal to find missing RAF Honington serviceman Corrie McKeague.

The cook, and joint majority shareholder of Norwich City Football Club, posed with a poster asking for help in tracing the 23-year-old at this afternoon's match at Carrow Road.

Corrie has not been seen since 3.20am on Saturday, September 24, following a Friday night out in Bury St Edmunds.

Writing on the Facebook page Help find Missing Corrie McKeague, Sarah Tali Blewden, who took the photos of Ms Smith, said: 'Good old Delia Smith! - thank you for the picture.

'Today before the match I spent 40 mins handing out leaflets and posters around the ground in the lounges and club shop. Around all the kiosks where people buy drinks etc and saw a lot of people looking at the leaflets at half time. I even gave one of the Rotherham coach drivers a poster to put in his window on the way home. 26,813 attendance today!'

Corrie's father Martin McKeague has said: 'Corrie is a people person. He loves being around people. He's really, really easy to talk to – he will talk to you first. He wants that interaction with people. He makes people feel happy. He's that type of guy.'

Mr McKeague said he was 'desperate' for anyone who could help find his son to come forward.
