The father of a man who went missing on a camping trip in the Hebrides has travelled from his home in Hungary to help police search for his son.
Peter Gador has joined Northern Constabulary in Stornoway in a bid to assist the hunt for his 27-year-old son Tamas.
Tamas Gador was reported missing earlier this week after he failed to return home.
He was last seen in the Stornoway area of the Isle of Lewis on Sunday but police said there have been possible sightings on Harris and they suspect he is still in the Western Isles.
His family in Hungary are concerned for the man’s safety.
Yesterday, his sister Krisztina Gador Meyers contacted grough to say: “We are desperate for information about him.”
Ms Gador Myers said he is 6ft 6ins (1.98m), of slim build and with dark brown hair and a beard.
Police said he is wearing a distinctive bright green waterproof jacket, light coloured trousers and walking boots. He was in possession of a large rucksack and a two-tone grey tent with a red rainsheet.
A Northern Constabulary spokesperson said: “Tamas’s father Peter has travelled from Hungary to Stornoway to assist police with their enquiries.
“He urges any person who may have seen Tamas, or a similarly described tent pitched, to contact Stornoway police station on 01851 702222.”
