Body found in search for missing walker on Isle of Skye


A body has been found in the search for an “experienced walker” who went missing on the Isle of Skye.

Francis Johnson, 74, left his home in Dorset on Monday 4 September and was last seen at the Glenbrittle camping site two days later.

His camping equipment and car remained at the site, which is on the shore of Loch Brittle and at the foot of the rocky and jagged Cuillin Hills.

Two weeks after Mr Johnson’s disappearance, Police Scotland publicly appealed for any information on his whereabouts and described the pensioner as an “experienced walker” who planned his trips “meticulously”.
