Police and mountain rescue teams are continuing searches for a missing hillwalker in the Highlands.
Stephen Mitchell was reported missing after not returning as planned from a walk in the Strathcarron area at the weekend.
The 57-year-old set off on Friday from close to the Strathcarron Hotel and intended to walk in the Bendronaig Lodge, Lurg Mhor and Bearneas areas.
He is believed to have been near Beinn Dronaig about 9am on Saturday.
Searches are ongoing in the area today, with mountain rescue teams from RAF Lossiemouth, RAF Leeming and Torridon working with the Search and Rescue Dogs Association (SARDA) and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency search and rescue helicopter.
Sergeant Bruce Crawford said: “As time passes we are naturally increasingly concerned for Mr Mitchell’s well-being and I would ask anybody who thinks they have seen him or someone matching his description to contact us.
“We have heard from a number of other walkers who were in this area at the weekend and we’re grateful for all of the information we have received.
“Mr Mitchell intended to stay in bothies during his walk. We know from guest books from the bothies in the area that there were other walkers who stayed there over the weekend who we have yet to hear from.
“I would ask that these people get in touch. Any information or possible sightings, even if it was something you thought was inconsequential at the time, could help us in our search.”
Mr Mitchell is described as 6ft tall with grey hair and is likely to have greying stubble.
While walking he carries a black rucksack and uses either an orange or sulphur-coloured sleeping bag.
Anyone with information regarding Stephen Mitchell’s whereabouts is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.
