Missing walker Kyle Sambrook

Police have renewed appeals for sightings of a hillwalker missing in the Glen Coe area.

They revealed that Kyle Sambrook and his beagle Bane were spotted in the Lost Valley about noon on Sunday.

Officers said they are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen him since then.

The 33-year-old from the Pontefract area of West Yorkshire, travelled to the glen on Saturday 18 February, arriving about 3.30pm. His black Peugeot 208 was found at the Three Sisters car park.

Sergeant Shaun Knox of Police Scotland said: “Kyle was suitably clothed for walking and we believe he had a tent and other equipment with him.

“He may have changed his original plan to climb Buachaille Etive Mòr and it is important that we find him to make sure he is safe and well.

“We are asking anyone who was out and about on Sunday in the area, and in the days since, if they recall seeing Kyle and his dog, both are quite distinctive.

“We would like to thank everyone who has responded to our appeal as every piece of information, no matter how small, could be vital in helping us to find him. Please get in touch with any information that you might have.”

Members of the Search and Rescue Dogs Association have joined mountain rescuers from the Glencoe, Lochaber, Oban, Arran and Police Scotland teams, along with the RAF and Coastguard.

Mr Sambrook is described as white, 5ft8ins (1.73m) tall, medium build, ash-blond hair short hair, ginger-blond stubble and blue eyes. He has a West Yorkshire accent.

Officer said he was believed to be wearing khaki and black Merrell hiking boots, khaki and black Revolution Wraith outdoor trousers, a dark- and light-blue hooded Peter Storm waterproof jacket and grey North Face beanie hat. He was carrying a grey and yellow Merrell rucksack.

Anyone who can help is asked to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting reference number 1644 of Wednesday, 22 February 2023.
