Police are appealing for sightings of a mountain rescuer who has gone missing.

Graham Lockwood, a member of the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team in West Yorkshire, was reported missing shortly after 10pm on Friday.

The 44-year-old, of Clayton West near Huddersfield, may have gone walking in Scotland, officers said.

Mr Lockwood is described as white with short brown hair and of slim build. He is 5ft 10ins (1.78m) tall.

West Yorkshire Police said: “He has links to the Wakefield area but it is thought he may have travelled to Scotland.

“He may be wearing a jacket like the one pictured, a black SNF jacket. He is a volunteer with mountain rescue and has links to the Bute, Fort William, Inverness and Loch Ness areas of Scotland.

“He may have travelled to Scotland to the Great Glen Way that runs from Fort William to Inverness. He may also be around the General Ward’s Military Way that runs alongside the eastern side of Loch Ness between Inverness and Foyers [on the] opposite side of the Great Glen Way.”

A police spokesperson said: “Graham, or anyone who sees him, including walkers on the Great Glen Way, are asked to call West Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting log 1941 of Friday 13 December.”
