Concerns growing for experienced hill walker reported missing while climbing Scotland's Munros

Concerns are growing for the welfare of an experienced hill walker who was reported missing about three days ago.

Chris Smith was last seen at about 3pm on Tuesday, 27 October during a trek in the Glenlyon area.

The 43-year-old was following a planned route encompassing four Munros – Meall nan Aighean, Carn Mairg, Meall Garbh and Carn Gorm.

Police now entered their third day of searching for him and have been working closely with local mountain rescue teams and a Coastguard helicopter.

Inspector Emma Bowman, from Tayside Police Division, said: “Chris is an experienced hill walker and fell runner, so it is naturally concerning that he remains missing at this time. Our thoughts are with his family as the searches continue today.

“I’d like to thank everyone who has taken part in the searches so far and ask anyone who has any information about Chris’s whereabouts to contact police on 101, quoting incident 2775 of 27 October.”
