The family of a man who went missing after he went for a swim near the Skye Bridge has made an emotional appeal for information about his disappearance.
Andrew Gordon from the East Lothian area was last spoken to at about 8.45am yesterday in Kyleakin on the Skye side of the crossing.
Police believe that the 54-year-old may have gone for a swim. He was reported missing by a family member at 12.30pm.
Mr Gordon’s family said: “We are extremely grateful to members of the emergency services, search and rescue personnel and members of the local community who have been helping in the search for Andrew since Sunday afternoon.
“We’d like to appeal to anyone who saw Andrew or spoke to him on Sunday to please get in touch with the police on 101. Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, may assist in bringing Andrew home to us.”
Police divers joined the search this morning, which also involved a police dog unit, the Search and Rescue Dog Association, and lifeboats from Kyle and Portree.
Members of the public and pleasure boats in the area also assisted with the effort yesterday afternoon.
Mr Gordon is described as being 6ft tall, of muscular build, with short shaved brown hair and a beard.
He was last seen wearing grey combat-style trousers and a “Guns & Roses” hooded top.
