Missing walker Lochailort and Glenfinnan and a body located in Glencoe.

Police have appealed for help in tracing a hillwalker who has not been seen since 3 May when he boarded a train at Fort William.

Goffredo Bondanelli, 56, from Germany, was travelling to Lochaillort ahead of a planned five-day walk between there and Glenfinnan.

Police said the experienced hillwalker was likely to have been camping close to nearby hills and Munros.

He may have later travelled by train or bus to Arrochar in Argyll.

Mr Bondanelli is described as being about 5ft 10 in tall, of an athletic build with dark and grey hair. He was wearing dark outdoor clothing.

A body has been found during a search of Glen Coe for a hillwalker who was reported missing last week.

Edward Davies, 39, from Hampshire, has not been in touch with his family or friends since Sunday 8 May.

Extensive searches involving mountain rescue teams, search dogs, police and a helicopter have been made since he was reported missing the following Wednesday.

Mr Davies, an experienced hillwalker, had planned to climb Sgurr na h-Ulaidh.

In a statement released on Tuesday, his family said they still held “every hope” of him being found alive.

They have been told by police of the discovery of the body.
