The body of a man was found in the hills above Attadale in Strathcarron by a member of the public yesterday.
Police have not formally identified the body yet but the family of Stephen Mitchell from Perthshire has been informed.
The 57-year-old was reported missing in the area in February this year.
Sergeant Bryan Chalmers of Kyle of Lochalsh said: “Police Scotland would like to thank the tireless efforts of Torridon, other mountain rescue teams and all the partner agencies involved in this protracted search.
“Our thoughts are with Mr Mitchell’s family at this sad time.”
