A major search by rescuers and police failed to find a walker who has been missing for more than a week.
The search was called off on Saturday as darkness fell. No trace has been found of 83-year-old Clifford Wannop, who failed to return from a walk on Skye on Friday, 2 October.
Search dogs from Northern Constabulary and the Search and Rescue Dogs Association joined Glenelg, Skye, Torridon, Kintail and RAF Kinloss Mountain Rescue Teams in the hunt for the missing man, who disappeared when he went for a short walk in the forest near the Kinloch Lodge Hotel, Sleat.
Police have expressed their concern for the man’s wellbeing.
The search on Saturday was in and around the Kinloch area, where Mr Wannop was last seen.
A spokesperson for the Northern Constabulary said: “Any decisions about further searches – whether they will continue and what they will involve – will be subject to discussion and inter-agency liaison in due course.”
Meanwhile, the police renewed their appeal for anyone who may have seen Mr Wannop or who has any knowledge about his whereabouts to contact them at Portree Police Station on 01478 612888 or at any police station. Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Mr Wannop is described as white, clean shaven, 1.63m (5ft 4ins) tall, bald and with a slim build. He was last seen wearing brown trousers, a brown checked shirt, a beige – possibly faded – quilted jacket and a flat cap. His family says he is very fit and active and looks more like a man in his early 60s.
