Body found in search for missing hiker last seen in selfie on Ben Nevis

Police have found a body in the search for missing hiker Sarah Buick.

Sarah, 24, was last seen in a selfie while on the highest peak on the Scottish mountain on Tuesday morning.

She hasn't been seen or heard from since.

Police Scotland issued an update detailing they had found a body but are still waiting for formal identification.

Sarah's family have been informed, officers added.

"There are no suspicious circumstances and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal in due course," said the force.

Members of RAF, Lochaber, and Police Scotland mountain rescue teams joined the hunt for Ms Buick today.

She had posted her selfie at the top of the 4413ft high Ben Nevis to social media along with the caption: "Good morning from Ben Nevis."

At the time she went missing she was wearing a light green jacket and carrying an orange rucksack.

Officers have said she could have moved to other locations in the Lochaber area.

It's understood Sarah walked to the summit from Lower Falls area of Glen Nevis, to the south of the mountain.

A statement said: "Police Scotland are appealing for witnesses that can assist in tracing Sarah Buick in the Lochaber area.

"Sarah is a keen walker and was last known to be, as pictured at the Summit of Ben Nevis at 05:00 hours 22/06/21, however she may have moved on to other locations within the area.

"If you have sighted Sarah at any time on or after 22/06/21 please contact the Police straight away on 101, quoting incident number PS-20210622-2741."
