Police, three mountain rescue teams and dogs are poised to make a fresh search for an 83-year-old man who has been missing on Skye since last Friday.

Clifford Wannop, who was holidaying in Kinloch, was reported missing by his family after he failed to return from a walk.

A meeting was held at Portree Police Station on how the ongoing search should be progressed.

It was decided to involve the various teams in a major search on Saturday.

Insp Duncan Maclean said: "The Kinloch area has been extensively searched since Friday for Mr Wannop.

"It is hoped to continue with further searches on Saturday with police and Sarda dogs and the three local mountain rescue teams from Skye, Kintail and Glenelg."
