An urgent appeal has been launched to trace a missing hillwalker who disappeared a week ago.
Ross Kinghorn, 57, was last seen on CCTV boarding a train from Linlithgow on January 16, having intended to go hillwalking in the Bridge of Tilt area in Perthshire.
The most recent confirmed sighting was around 9am on January 16 after he arrived in Blair Atholl. It is believed he set out for the Beinn a’ Ghlò hills nearby on the same day.
He was reported missing on January 20 after failing to return as planned.
Extensive police enquiries and searches of the area have been carried out but Mr Kinghorn is still missing.
Some personal items belonging to him were found near the Bridge of Tilt in the course of search activity.
Mr Kinghorn is described as white, 5ft 8in tall, with slim build, with a bald head and is believed to be wearing a blue beanie hat, blue waterproof jacket, green fleece, grey walking trousers and brown boots.
He was also in possession of a small two-wheel trolley which was among the items recovered.
Sergeant James Longden said: “We remain very concerned for Ross as our enquiries continue and we would continue to urge anyone with any information which may help to get in touch.
“Ross is an experienced hillwalker. His intention was to walk in the Beinn a’ Ghlò hills above Blair Atholl and I would urge any other walkers who have been in the area who may have seen anything which looked out of place to get in touch as your information may prove helpful.
“I would also ask residents in the Bridge of Tilt area to check their sheds and outbuildings for any sign that he may have been there.
“Anyone who may have seen Ross is asked to contact police on 101 quoting 1588 of 20 January, 2023.”
