Police Scotland have made an appeal to help find a Paisley man who went missing in the Highlands on Easter Sunday.

David Mooney, 43, visited Loch Cluanie, West of Invergarry, with a group of friends for a weekend fishing trip.

Police said that he unexpectedly left his friends at around 1.30pm on Sunday and has not been seen since.

Officers have confirmed, via CCTV, that is possible he got on a bus and travelled to Inverness where he was seen at the train station at around 3.50pm on yesterday (Monday, 18th April).

David is described 5ft 7ins tall and of medium build with short black hair and when he was last seen, he was wearing a black Berghaus jacket, green fishing trousers, black trainers and a yellow woolly hat.

Police said it was possible David got a bus or another form of transport from the A87 to head back to Paisley.

Officers are becoming increasing concerned as it is out of character for David not to be in contact with friends or family.

Police Scotland said: “Anyone who has information about David’s whereabouts or who thinks they may have seen him since 1.30pm on Sunday is urged to contact police on 101, quoting reference number 2423 of April 17.”

Kintail Mountain Rescue, who are involved in the search for David, said: “It’s been a busy few days over the Easter break for the Team, who have been assisting the police in the search for Mr David Mooney, missing from the Loch Cluanie / Glen Shiel area since Sunday afternoon.

“Enquiries are still ongoing – should you have any information on the whereabouts of Mr Mooney, please contact Police Scotland.”

Loch Cluanie is a loch in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland at the south-east end of Glen Shiel.
