Hillwalker missing after taking selfie on Ben Nevis Police Scotland

Police have launched a search for a missing woman last seen at the top of Scotland’s highest mountain.

Sarah Buick, 24, took a selfie at the summit of Ben Nevis at around 5am on Tuesday, but has not been seen or heard from since.

Ms Buick, an experienced walker from Dundee, hiked from the Lower Falls area of Glen Nevis.

Following her summit of Ben Nevis she may have walked to other locations or intended to return using a similar route to descend to Glen Nevis.

Ms Buick is around 5ft 3in, slim, with long brown hair. At the time of going missing, she was wearing a light green jacket and was carrying an orange rucksack. 

Inspector Nick Hough said: “As time goes on we are becoming increasingly concerned for Sarah.

“She is an experienced walker and often makes trips alone, but it is very unlike her to be out of contact with friends and family for this length of time. 

“We are appealing to anyone who may have been in the Ben Nevis or Glen Nevis area over the last 36 hours and has seen anything which may help our searches to please get in touch.”
