The Northern Constabulary are appealing for any information on the whereabouts of a missing Cairngorms-based journalist who is thought to have gone to the Knoydart area.
Clive Dennier, 50, a reporter on the Strathspey and Badenoch Herald, was reported missing on Monday 25th March when he failed to turn up to work at the newspaper's Grantown office.
Police believe Mr Dennier had spoken about going hill walking at the weekend. He has not been seen since.
Mr Dennier drives a silver Volkswagen Polo, registration number SX54 CXD, which has missing wheel trims.
The paper's editor Gavin Musgrove said:
'Everyone who knows Clive is very concerned by his disappearance as it is completely out of character. He would have made every effort to let us know he is safe and well.'
'All those who care so much about Clive would ask for anyone who may have seen him or his car since he finished work in Grantown late on Friday afternoon to contact the police.'
Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101.
The extensive search continues for Clive Dennier. Following the discovery of his car in the Kinlochourn area on Friday 29th March searching has been focused on Friday and Saturday around Knoydart Peninsula, Kinlochourn, Barrisdale and Glen Quoich.
The search is being coordinated by Northern Constabulary with searches being carried out by Glenelg, Kintail and Royal Air Force mountain rescue teams, Coastguard and Police dog units. Skywatch have provided assistance with aerial searching.
'This is an understandably anxious time for Mr Dennier's family and they request that their privacy be respected' say the police.
