A body has been found in the search for a 74-year-old hiker who was last seen at a campsite on the Isle of Skye.
A massive search for Francis Johnson was launched and conducted by nearly 30 members of mountain rescue teams on Skye on Saturday, resulting in a body being found nearly 1500 ft up on the south bank of Sgurr nan Gobhar, in the Cuillin Hills.
It took just one hour for the body to be found, but another four for it to be stretchered off the hill.
Francis was last seen on September 6 when he travelled to the Isle of Skye from his home in Dorset.
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said: 'The body of a man has been found on the Cuillin range in the Isle of Skye during searches for a missing person.
'He is yet to be formally identified but the family of Francis Johnson, 74, who had been reported missing in the area, have been informed.'
Neil Urquhart, team leader of Skye Mountain Rescue Team (MRT), praised an eagle-eyed member of his team.
