A major search has resumed on Ben Nevis for Haider Ali Manir

A full-scale search resumed at first light this morning for a man missing on Britain’s highest mountain.

Haider Ali Manir was last seen at a height of about 1,000m (3,281ft) at 6pm on Sunday on Ben Nevis.

A relative reported the walker missing when he failed to return.

A major search involving Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team, RAF Kinloss MRT and RAF Valley MRT from Anglesey, which was in the area on a training exercise, all took part in the hunt for the missing 20-year-old.

The search was suspended overnight but resumed today, with Search and Rescue Dogs Association handlers and animals and a Royal Navy Sea King helicopter from HMS Gannet in Ayrshire helping the operation.

A spokesperson for Northern Constabulary said: “Searches were called off last night due to darkness and worsening weather conditions. Although conditions have improved this morning further snow is forecast for the higher ground later today.

“Police have real concerns for his safety and welfare, particularly as he is not thought to be equipped for the conditions. He was last seen wearing jeans and a navy jacket and black hat.”
