Renewed appeal over missing hillwalker
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.
