Officers in the Highlands are continuing to appeal for sightings of missing man Derek Hepbrun.

The 53-year-old from Nairn has not been in contact with his family since Sunday, April 24 2022.

His vehicle has now been located in the Loch Mullardoch Dam car park in the Glen Cannich area.

His planned route is currently unknown, though enquiries so far suggest he may have intended to complete a walk on Sgurr Na Lapaich or in the surrounding area.

Enquiries are ongoing to establish his plans.

Chief Inspector Jenny Valentine said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for Derek as he has been out of contact with his family and friends since last weekend.

“I would urge anyone who believes they may have seen him on or after Sunday 24 April 2022 to get in touch urgently.

“Anyone who can help is asked to call 101, quoting reference 1812 of 27 April.”

Derek is described as 6ft 1in, of slim build, with black hair which is balding. He is normally clean shaven or with light stubble.
