Police use dogs in search for missing Mildenhall airman
British police have intensified their search for an RAF Mildenhall master sergeant who has been missing for almost a week.
Master Sgt. Bernard Huggins, 33, from the 100th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron was last seen about 10:40 p.m. on Nov. 12, when he was dropped off by a taxi near the Judes Public House in West Row, just outside the base.
“We have carried out detailed searches of the West Row area using the helicopter, police dogs and the Lowland Search and Rescue Team,” said Detective Inspector David Skevington in a police news release.
“House-to-house inquiries and other investigations have been conducted, but at this stage, we have had no other confirmed sightings of him,” he said.
“As time goes on, we are becoming increasingly concerned for Mr. Huggins.”
Skevington said that officials are looking for anyone who was at Judes Pub between 10 and 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 12.
“Even if you don’t recognize Mr. Huggins, we would still like to hear from you, as you may have information to assist us with our inquiries,” he said.
Huggins, who has been stationed at RAF Mildenhall for two years, is officially listed as “whereabouts unknown” by his unit, an RAF Mildenhall spokesman said.
Huggins is about 5-foot-5 with cropped black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a blue long-sleeved pullover, jeans and white sneakers, according to police information.
Anyone with information on Huggins’ whereabouts can call the Mildenhall police at 01284-774-100.
