Two bodies have been found in the search for a father and his 12-year-old son who went missing after going hillwalking in Glencoe in the Highlands, police have said.

Tom Parry, 49, and his son Richie were due to return to their home in Cheshire on Wednesday after visiting Glen Nevis and Glencoe.

Their car was found in the Three Sisters car park in Glencoe where they stopped on Tuesday to go hillwalking.

Police said that two bodies were found during a search in Glencoe on Wednesday evening.

In a statement on Thursday, Police Scotland said the pair were yet to be formally identified, however their family had been informed.

A spokesperson said inquiries were ongoing but “there are no apparent suspicious circumstances”.

Insp Craig Johnstone said: “Our thoughts are with all those involved. I would like to thank all emergency services and mountain rescue volunteers.”

The force said it would submit a report to the procurator fiscal service in due course.
