Missing Corrie McKeague's girlfriend April Oliver posts pregnancy photo

The RAF gunner's partner has penned an emotional message to her unborn child about how proud he would be.

The girlfriend of missing airman Corrie McKeague has posted a picture of herself showing her pregnancy alongside an emotional message to her unborn child.
In a post on Facebook, the picture shows April Oliver, 21, holding a pair of baby boots, with a message saying she is "truly in love" with the baby.
RAF gunner Mr McKeague, 23, who was stationed at RAF Honington in Suffolk, vanished after a night out in Bury St Edmunds in September 2016.
In the letter to their unborn child, Ms Oliver, a personal trainer from Norfolk, wrote: "I struggle with finding the right words because sometimes, when you have to be strong and out on a brave face, you forget about the precious moments that pass by.
"Yesterday was an emotional but exciting day, and sometimes it only takes one person to help you see what you have. I miss and love Corrie with every part of my body and little things set off different emotions.

"I can't help but be truly, unconditionally in love with my baby and you're not here yet. You bring so much pain yet just as much joy. Daddy would be proud of you, my little one, and would love you as much as I do.
"Corrie will be a part of both of us forever and no one can take that away. Mummy loves you, little baby."
The couple met on a dating site five months before Mr McKeague went missing.
He became separated from friends after leaving a nightclub.
When he disappeared he was wearing a light pink Ralph Lauren shirt, white jeans and brown suede Timberland boots with light soles.

His mobile phone signal was traced to the Barton Mills area in the hours after he was last seen.
Police have trawled through more than 1,000 hours of CCTV but the disappearance of the Fife-born serviceman remains a mystery.
Mr McKeague was last recorded entering a dead-end loading area, known as the 'horseshoe', behind a Greggs shop - but there was no sign of him leaving.
This led to fears he may have been accidentally picked up in an industrial bin from the area, sparking a search of a landfill site at Milton near Cambridge.
The search was expected to take six to 10 weeks, but has since been extended.
