Woman who died in Glencoe named by police
Police Scotland have named the woman who died in Glencoe last Monday as Rebekah Caroline Pettifer, 52, from Northamptonshire.
Ms Pettifer, who was known as Caroline, was recovered from an area close to a path leading towards Buachaille Etive Beag.
A 23-year-old woman, believed to be Ms Pettifer’s daughter, was also recovered during the operation and taken to the Belford Hospital in Fort William for treatment.
They were airlifted from the area by a Coastguard helicopter after concerns were raised by hillwalkers shortly after 9.30am. The incident also saw the involvement of Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team.
Police say there are no suspicious circumstances relating to Ms Pettifer’s death and a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal, as is standard practice.
It is believed Ms Pettifer had gone to seek help after her daughter became unwell after the pair got into difficulty.
