Four mountain rescue teams have been joined by two helicopters and search dogs after the man failed to return home last night.

Glencoe, Oban, Lochaber and RAF Mountain Rescue Teams are searching for the missing hillwalker.

Dogs and handlers from the Search and Rescue Dogs Association and Police Scotland are also out on the mountain and a Sea King search and rescue helicopter from RAF Lossiemouth has joined the Police Scotland air support unit aircraft in the hunt for the man on and around the 1,022m (3,353ft) mountain.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “The overdue hillwalker is believed to be wearing a red rucksack.

“Police would ask that anyone who has been walking in the area either yesterday or today and may any information, to please call us on 101.”
