Glyn hasn’t been in contact with family since and they are becoming increasingly concerned.

He also failed to meet with a group of friends for a planned trip.

Assynt Mountain Rescue Team this evening said it had spent a second day searching for him on the Cape Wrath Trail, north of Ben More Lodge.

The team had support from SARDA dogs.

Anyone walking the Trail around April 28 north of Oykel Bridge who may have seen Glyn should contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting ref 2232 of May 12.

Glyn is described as white, 5ft 6in tall and of slim build. When he was last seen it’s believed he was wearing outdoor type clothing and carrying a rucksack.
