Police have discovered a body, believed to be that of missing Loch Awe man, David Alan Jones.

We reported earlier today that Mr Jones (69) left home at 5.30pm on Wednesday, July 22, to walk up to Cruachan Dam. Mr Jones has done this walk on a number of occasions, however when he failed to return home last night, his family contacted police.

At around 1.30pm today, (Thursday, July 23,), officers discovered a man’s body on Cruachan. Whilst a formal identification has still to take place it’s believed to be Mr Jones, who was reported missing from his home in Loch Awe yesterday.

His relatives have been informed and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

Members of the public and media are thanked for their assistance.
