- Crime · Incidents · Peterhead

Po­lice have called off the search for a teacher who went miss­ing while rock climb­ing in Aberdeen­shire two weeks ago.

The fam­ily of Owain Bris­tow said they were “dev­as­tated” at their loss.

The 34- year-old was last seen climb­ing in the Bullers of Buchan area near Peter­head around 7:30pm on 21 Au­gust.

De­spite searches by po­lice and HM Coast­guard, in­volv­ing spe­cial­ist of­fi­cers from a po­lice dive and marine unit, no trace of him was found.

Bris­tow said: “We are all dev­as­tated at the loss of Owain. He was a dearly loved and lov­ing son, brother, un­cle and part­ner.

“Owain’s en­thu­si­asm for out­door pur­suits and pas­sion for teach­ing were ob­vi­ous to all who met him.
