An urgent appeal has been launched to find a missing hillwalker who disappeared on Ben Nevis.
Zekun Zhang, 26, was last seen near the summit of nearby peak Càrn Mòr Dearg around 1pm on Tuesday.
Police say Mr Zhang is believed to have walked from there to the top of Ben Nevis, with both peaks being linked by the Carn Mor Dearg arete.
The alarm was raised when he failed to return to the North Face car park as planned.
He is described as 5ft 8in and of medium build, with short dark hair. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, black trousers, and black and grey boots. He was also carrying a black rucksack.
Police sergeant Dawn Grant said: “We are appealing for anyone who may have seen Zekun to contact police immediately.
“In particular, I would urge anyone out on these walking routes on Tuesday, and today, who may have heard or seen something that will help us find Zekun to get in touch.
“Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 2343 of Tuesday, April 11, 2023.”
