A walker has been found safe and well after going missing overnight.

The 60-year-old man was found by the crew of a Sea King helicopter from RAF Valley on Anglesey, after the alarm was raised late last night, Sunday. Members of the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation joined the search for the man, on the Carneddau.

A spokesperson for North Wales Police said: “Concern was raised for the man from Northamptonshire at 11.40pm after he failed to meet at a rendezvous point having been climbing in Snowdonia yesterday.”

He was found just after 5.30am today, Monday. The Carneddau were the scene of a major search and rescue a week previously when atrocious weather conditions and poor visibility hit the annual Welsh 1000m Peaks Race.
