An urgent search has been launched in the Highlands for a hillwalker missing since climbing the UK’s highest mountain on Friday.
Harvey Christian has not returned since embarking on a trek up Ben Nevis on January 27 amid growing concerns for his safety.
The 42-year-old, from Cambridgeshire, is understood to have reached the summit, but is yet to make contact with family or friends.
Police Scotland has now issued an appeal for fellow climbers and walkers to contact officers if they have any information on his whereabouts.
“Harvey is believed to have climbed Ben Nevis on Friday, January 27 and not returned,” the force said.
“Police are concerned for the welfare of Harvey and are keen to trace him as soon as possible.
“We suspect that he is in the area of Ben Nevis and would appeal to any hillwalkers who have visited since January 27 who may have information.
“Anyone with information is asked to contact 101 quoting incident 3318 of January 28.”
