Corrie vanished after a night out in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk on September 24, 2016, when it is believed he climbed into a waste bin and fell asleep.
Officers spent 137 days trawling through more than 7,000 tonnes of rubbish at the Milton rubbish tip for Corrie but did not find his remains.
In March they announced they announced his disappearance had been moved to the major investigation cold case team and said all evidence pointed to him being in the landfill.
The landfill site in Cambridgeshire is now believed to be his final resting place.
Corrie was last seen in the area of Bury St Edmunds known as the ‘horseshoe’ where there was a bin lorry collection at around 4.15am to 4.20am.

Only one bin was collected from the area that morning. Waste from it was initially taken to a transfer station at Red Lodge and then to the Milton landfill site.
Milton landfill site is around 485,623 square metres and Cell 22 measures 10,000 square metres.
The original 20-week search for Corrie was stopped in July 2017 after nothing was found.
Officers searched through more than 6,500 tonnes of waste during this time, at a cost of £1,291,181.
A further search started on October 23, 2017 and finished in December 2017 at an estimated cost of £240,000.
The police investigation into missing Corrie has cost £2.1million to date, according to a Freedom of Information request ordered by the BBC. It makes the case one of the most expensive undertaken by a police force.
