Alexander Brett, 65, is believed to have gone running on Sunday intending to complete a route including Beinn Eighe, Beinn Dearg, Beinn Alligan and Liathach in the north west Highlands.

The alarm was raised on Thursday by a member of the public who reported that his car had been left in the area for several days.

Police Scotland are coordinating the search with assistance from Dundonell Mountain Rescue Team, Torridon Mountain Rescue Team, the RAF Mountain Rescue Team, search dogs, police dogs and a coastguard helicopter.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said: “Police Scotland are anxious to trace an experienced hill runner who has been reported missing in the Torridon area.

“Mr Brett is believed to wear trainers and carry either a small rucksack or bum bag when hill running.

“If anyone has seen Alexander, or may have information regarding his whereabouts, they are urged to contact police on 101 with information.

“Police would also be keen to speak to members of the public who may have recently been out walking in the Beinn Eighe, Beinn Dearg, Beinn Alligan and Liathach areas.”
