The search for a missing Kiltarlity man are continuing, with a Highland mountain rescue team drafting in their new command vehicle to assist.
James Paton was last seen around 1.30pm on Monday close to his home in Beauly, having gone for a walk with his dog.
His Dacia Duster was discovered parked three miles away on a track in Ruttle Woods, with the dog inside, at about 4.30pm.
Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team, the Inverness Coastguard helicopter, search dogs and more than 100 members of the community have been scouring the dense woods for the 72-year-old since.
The mountain rescue team has been using its new £50,000 command control vehicle, which was bought following a massive fundraising campaign by the 38-strong squad.
Team leader Iain Nesbitt said: “Our prime purpose is, at the request of Police Scotland, to save lives on the hills. This vehicle will help us do this more effectively, bringing together all modern means of communication across our extensive and often remote terrain. We’ll have better links with emergency service partners and team members on the ground and will be able to stay on station in a much greater degree of safety and comfort than was previously feasible.”
Mr Paton is described as 5ft 5ins, of stout build with a grey beard and hair and wears glasses.
Anyone with information should call 101.
