Chris Smith failed to return from an outing above Glen Lyon

Searches are continuing for a third day for an experienced mountain runner who has gone missing in the Highlands.

Chris Smith, a member of the GB mountain running team, failed to return from a journey on the hills above Glen Lyon on Tuesday.

Police Scotland said they have been working in close partnership with local mountain rescue teams with the help of a Coastguard helicopter.

Inspector Emma Bowman of Tayside police division said: “Chris is an experienced hillwalker and fellrunner, so it is naturally concerning that he remains missing at this time. Our thoughts are with his family as the searches continue today.

“I’d like to thank everyone who has taken part in the searches so far and ask anyone who has any information about Chris’s whereabouts to contact police on 101, quoting incident 2775 of 27 October.”

The 43-year-old set out about 3pm from Inverar, intending to summit Meall na Aighean, Càrn Mairg, Meall Garbh and Càrn Gorm. He was reported missing at 7.30pm the same day.
