A search is underway for a missing walker on Arran.

David Martin Randle failed to return from a hillwalking trip on the island last night.

He set off from the Glen Rosa campsite yesterday about 1.45pm, heading for the Cir Mhòr area. His wife contacted police when he did not return to the campsite.

Arran Mountain Rescue Team was alerted and launched a search, which failed to find the 73-year-old. The search resumed this morning.

Police on the island appealed for the public’s help for sightings of the walker.

Mr Randle is described as white, about 5ft 10in (1.78m), slim build, with receding grey hair. He was wearing a blue National Trust baseball cap, dark blue waterproof anorak, dark blue trousers and walking boots. He was also carrying a compass and a camera.

A police spokesperson said: “Police Scotland is requesting assistance from Arran residents and visitors who may be walking in Arran to report any sightings of Mr Randle to them.”
