Police and rescuers appeal for info on couple missing on Ben Nevis

Police Scotland and the Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team are appealing for information about two climbers who are missing on Ben Nevis.

Tim Newton and Rachel Slater, both from Bradford and in their twenties – were climbing on the mountain over the weekend. It is thought they camped behind the CIC hut in a green tent.


Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team carried out searches on Monday night and further searches now under way.

Anyone with information about the missing couple should call Police Scotland on 101 and ask for Fort William police.

Police Scotland have released a picture of the couple and said they would have been wearing climbing gear similar to that seen in the photograph.
