Searches are continuing in Wester Ross this weekend for a pensioner who has been missing since last Sunday.
Police are asking anyone out walking in the area to report anything that could help them to find Roger Fletcher.
The 77-year-old was last seen when he set off from a holiday home in Bundalloch, near Dornie, for a walk at around 8.30am and the alarm was raised when he failed to return.
Extensive searches have been carried out in the Dornie, Bundalloch and Glenshiel areas and around the A87 Invergarry to Kyle road in the Cluanie direction.
Police officers, police and SARDA dogs, Kintail and RAF Mountain Rescue Teams and lifeboat and Coastguard personnel have been involved in the search effort.
South Highland Area Commander Chief Inspector Brian Mackay yesterday said: “It’s been five days since Mr Fletcher was reported missing and we are extremely concerned for his welfare, as are his family and friends.
“Police and partners have been searching in the area we believe Roger intended to walk, but also extending the search towards the A87 and surrounding hills and woodland.”
And he asked anyone who was out walking in the area over the weekend to bear the search activity in mind and report anything that could assist in the search.
The chief inspector said: “We would also reiterate our appeal to anyone who lives or visits locally to check gardens, outbuilding and sheds.”
He added that members of the public were thanked for the good response to the appeal so far.
Searches planned for the weekend are expected to include police officers and dogs, together with local and RAF Mountain Rescue Teams.
Mr Fletcher has white hair, wears glasses and walks with a stoop.
He uses walking poles and is understood to have been carrying a small, khaki-coloured rucksack.
Anyone with any information that could help trace Mr Fletcher is urged to contact police on 101.
