Appeal For Info in Search for Missing Cairngorms Walker

Jim Robertson, 27 kb

Mountain Rescue Teams in the Cairngorms are searching for a lone man who has been missing since last Monday. An experienced walker who has already done all the Munros, 61-year-old Jim Robertson was staying at Bob Scott's bothy near Linn of Dee.

His daughter has made a public appeal for information:

"Please keep re-sharing all official (police, mountain rescue, hillwalking clubs etc) posts about my dad, Jim Robertson."

"We know that he has been out in the snow (potentially since Monday) with next to nothing on his person. Our only hopes of finding him rely on people who have been/are in in the Cairngorms area to come forward with any information."

"The area is so vast and we have no information about what mountain he could be on. We need someone who has seen my dad to help Braemar & Aberdeen mountain rescue teams to narrow their search. We are desperate for my dad to be found."

He is 5ft10 tall, of medium build with short grey hair and wearing glasses. He may have been carrying a large rucksack.
