Further appeal to track hillwalker who vanished from Ben A’Cleibh ridge near Tyndrum Police Scotland

A further appeal has been launched to find a hillwalker who is believed to have vanished while climbing Munros.

Patrick Allan Munroe was last seen at the Pine Trees Leisure Park Campsite in Tyndrum, near Crianlarich, around 8am on Thursday, April 6.

Police enquires so far have found that he reached the summit of Ben Oss at around 1.15pm that day.

He then went on to the summit of Ben Lui, reaching it around 3pm, and then along the ridge to Ben A’Cleibh at around 4pm.

It is not known what route Mr Munroe took after this – he could have either retraced his steps along the ridge back to Ben Lui, or he could have taken a different route to the A85 and on towards Tyndrum.

Mr Munroe is in his early thirties and is described as 6ft, of slim, athletic build, and speaks with an American accent. He has shoulder length ginger hair and beard.

When last seen he was wearing a blue T-shirt, dark green jacket, a baseball cap and walking trousers and boots. He may have been carrying a rucksack.

Inspector David Ryan said: “Our efforts to trace Patrick are continuing and we know he reached three summits on the day he was last seen.

“He was dressed for the outdoors but we are becoming increasingly concerned and need to trace him to establish he is safe and well.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who saw him after that, particularly other walkers. He may have spoken to someone and indicated what route he was planning to take back to Tyndrum.

“I am also asking anyone out and about to keep an eye out and report any sighting to us. If you live in the area please also check out buildings in case he has sought shelter.”

Anyone who has seen Mr Munroe or might know where he is should call Police Scotland on 101, quoting reference number 2915 of Monday, April 10.
