A major search in the Scottish Highlands is continuing for a Skipton hillwalker who has not been seen since Thursday.
Northern Constabulary said Grant Cunliffe walked into Corrour Bothy in the Larig Ghru pass area of the Cairngorms on Wednesday, January 18 and planned to go hillwalking on the Thursday and Friday.
The alarm was raised on Saturday when Mr Cunliffe, 49, failed to check in to accommodation he had booked.
