Missing walker Glyn Smith

Police are appealing to participants and those involved in the Cape Wrath Ultra endurance event this weekend to be on the alert for a missing walker.

Cambridgeshire man Glyn Smith has not been seen for more than three weeks.

The 76-year-old is thought to be on a walking tour of northern Scotland. He was last seen near Benmore Lodge near Loch Ailsh in Sutherland on Thursday 28 April.

Police Scotland said: “Glyn is known to use a green one-person tent while travelling.

“The area is likely to be busy this weekend with those taking part in the Cape Wrath Ultra marathon and we would urge everyone to be vigilant and report anything of note to us.

“Glyn hasn’t been in contact with family and they are becoming increasingly concerned. He also failed to meet with a group of friends for a planned trip.”

Mr Smith is described as white, 5ft 6in (1.68m) tall and of slim build. When he was last seen it’s believed he was wearing outdoor type clothing and carrying a rucksack.

Anyone who thinks they may have seen the missing walker since Sunday 24 April is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 2232 of 12 May, 2022.
