Corrie McKeague and his mother Nicola Urquhart
Nicola Urquhart, 48, revealed her son and his partner April Oliver, 21, were members of a swingers’ website. She said it could hold vital clues to what happened to him.
The RAF gunner, 23, disappeared after a night out in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, on September 24 last year.
Ms Urquhart said 100,000 pieces of information from social media will be handed to police this week, including a potential sighting the morning after he vanished.
Other data has come from a phone line offering a £50,000 reward.
Ms Oliver also revealed this month that she was pregnant with McKeague’s baby in the hope it would bring him back.

Ms Urquhart, from Dunfermline,Fife, said: “With the dating sites they were on, and for her [April] to go out there and say they weren’t seeing each other exclusively, that is an awful thing for her to have to tell.
What if these sites had something to do with what happened to Corrie?
“It’s because she wanted to be honest. She could have closed the site and I could have closed Corrie’s but we have deliberately not done that because finding Corrie is more important.

“What if these sites had something to do with what happened to Corrie? This shouldn’t be about trying to find salacious gossip on Corrie or April. We’ve not painted him as an angel. We’ve tried to be honest about everything we know.”
