Brit doc­tor goes miss­ing in Alps

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A SEARCH is un­der way for a Bri­tish GP who is miss­ing – feared dead – af­ter a hike in the French Alps.

Robert Bai­ley, 63, has not been seen since he went out walk­ing in Les Houches, near Cha­monix, on March 22.

The area, at the foot of France’s high­est peak, Mont Blanc, lies on the bor­der with Switzer­land and Italy, and is pop­u­lar with skiers and climbers.

The For­eign and Com­mon­wealth Of­fice con­firmed it was in con­tact with the French au­thor­i­ties.

A recorded mes­sage at Min­ster Med­i­cal Prac­tice in Peter­bor­ough, where Dr Bai­ley is a se­nior part­ner, ad­vises pa­tients to only make emer­gency ap­point­ments “at this dif­fi­cult time”.
