Search crews looking for missing fell runner Chris Smith have recovered a body near to a Highland Perthshire Munro.
Police, Tayside Mountain Rescue and a Coastguard helicopter had been searching four Munros near Invervar between Loch Tay and Loch Rannoch since Tuesday afternoon, when GB international hill runner Chris Smith vanished.
The 43-year-old’s family have been notified, but formal identification is still to be confirmed.
A spokesperson said: “Police Scotland can confirm that at around 11:50am on Thursday, 29 October, 2020, the body of a man was found near to Meall Garbh in the Glenlyon area.
“Formal identification has yet to take place however the family of missing 43-year-old Chris Smith has been informed.
“Enquiries remain ongoing and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal in due course.”
Chris’s family had been searching the area as well, and their efforts had been supported by competitive hill-runners across the UK, who all hailed the popular Aberdeenshire-born runner, who had been holidaying in the area with his family.
