Searches are continuing in the Dornie area for Roger Fletcher, who was reported missing on Sunday 5th June.
Extensive searches have been carried out this week in the Dornie, Bundalloch and Glenshiel areas and around the A87 towards Cluanie. Police Officers, Police and SARDA dogs, lifeboat and Coastguard personnel have been involved in the search effort in addition to Kintail and RAF Mountain Rescue Teams.
Chief Inspector Brian Mackay, South Highland Area Commander 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.
“As we approach the weekend, officers would appeal to anyone who is walking in the area to bear the search activity in mind and report anything you feel may assist. We would also reiterate our appeal to anyone who lives or visits locally to check gardens, outbuilding and sheds. Members of the public are thanked for the good response to the appeal so far”
Search plans are underway for the weekend and are likely to include Police Officers and dogs together with local and RAF Mountain Rescue Teams. Anyone with any information to assist the search is urged to contact Police on 101.
