Two men have been arrested over the disappearance of a cyclist who was last seen more than three years ago.
Tony Parsons, from Tillicoultry, was last seen on September 29, 2017, outside the Bridge of Orchy Hotel near Glencoe during a charity bike ride.
No trace of the 63-year-old or his bike have ever been found.
Police have confirmed that two men, both aged 29, were arrested on Wednesday. They were released pending further inquiries.
