Search for walker who disappeared during Easter Monday hike

A search has been launched for a missing walker in Scotland.

Ivan Meyer, 45, left his home in Edinburgh and travelled by train to the Stirling village of Crianlarich on Monday.

Police Scotland said Mr Meyer is believed to have arrived from the A82, south of the village, to walk up the mountains of An Caisteal and Beinn a’ Chroin.

Inspector David Marr, from Stirling Police Station, said: “Ivan has not been in touch with friends or family for the past day and this is extremely out of character for him.

“As time passes, concern for his welfare continues to grow.”
