He is described as 5ft 9 inches in height, stocky build, with red and greying short hair, dressed in outdoor clothing and carrying a backpack.

Search efforts are being co-ordinated with partner agencies at this time, including Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team.

A statement said: “Police in Aviemore are anxious to trace Andrew Moorhouse, aged 46, who is from Sheffield but is currently missing in the Cairngorms area.

“We are urging anyone in the area – particularly walkers and cyclists in rural locations – to keep a look out for a male matching Andrew’s description and to report any sightings via 101.”

Mr Moorhouse is reported to be walking alone on forest paths between Aviemore, Coylumbridge and the Cairngorm mountains.
