Searches are continuing for hillwaker Edward Davies who has been missing in the Glencoe area of Lochaber for more than a week.

The 39-year-old has not been seen or heard from since he left a note in a hire car saying he planned to go up Sgùrr na h-Ulaidh at Glencoe on Sunday May 8 and to return the same day.

Extensive searching took place in the area over the weekend, involving members of Glencoe, Oban, Lochaber and RAF Mountain Rescue Teams in addition to SARDA dogs, police officers and the UK Coastguard helicopter Rescue 951.

However, Mr Davies is still missing and officers are renewing the appeal for anyone walking or climbing in the area to report anything that may assist the search effort, which is being reviewed and is continuing this week.

Sergeant Andy Bilton said: “As each day passes Edward’s family and all those involved in the search become increasingly concerned for his welfare.

“Edward is an experienced hillwalker and is likely to be well equipped for the outdoors.

“We urge anyone planning to walk in the Glencoe area to be mindful of the search activity and report anything that could help us locate Edward.

“Our search and rescue partners are thanked for their assistance to date and going forward.”

Mr Davies is described as white, 5ft 11in and of slim build with cropped dark brown hair, which is longer on top. He is likely to be wearing a blue waterproof jacket.

He has not been in contact with friends or family since May 8, which police have described as “out of character”.

Mr Davies was using a white Toyota Aygo hire car, which was parked near the Glencoe visitor centre. It has since been removed by police.

Anyone with any information that may help police with their inquiries is asked to call 101.
