Re­newed ap­peal over miss­ing hill­walker

The Oban Times - - News -

AN AP­PEAL con­tin­ues for in­for­ma­tion about miss­ing walker Robin Garten af­ter walk­ing poles were dis­cov­ered near where he went miss­ing.

The hik­ing equip­ment was dis­cov­ered by a walker in the Aonach Ea­gach Ridge area of Glen­coe, spark­ing an­other ex­ten­sive search for the 69-yearold but no fur­ther items were dis­cov­ered.

Po­lice are now ap­peal­ing for any­one who may have left or lost the black and gold Lecki tele­scopic poles to con­tact them on 101.

Any­one plan­ning to walk in the Glen­coe area is asked to bear in mind the on­go­ing search and to re­port any­thing they feel may as­sist enquiries to po­lice or Glen­coe Moun­tain Res­cue Team.

Mr Gar­ton hasn’t been seen since the morn­ing of Fri­day Septem­ber 25 when he checked out of the Kings House Ho­tel in Glen­coe.

Po­lice traced Mr Gar­ton’s black Volk­swa­gen Pas­sat es­tate car to the Ach­nam­bei­thach car park, off the A82 by Loch Achtri­ochtan. It is be­lieved Mr Gar­ton may have had made plans to walk in the Coire Nam Beith or Bidean Nam Bian ar­eas.

He is de­scribed as 6ft2ins in height, of slim to medium build with fair hair which is slightly bald­ing. It is not known what he was wear­ing on the day of his dis­ap­pear­ance.
