Body found in hunt for missing Bishopbriggs hillwalker

Rescue teams searching for a Bishopbriggs man who went missing while walking in the Stirlingshire hills have found a body.

Local man Daniel Bennett, 43, was last seen in Tyndrum just before midday on Saturday.

Police said the body of a man was found in the area of Ben Oss on Tuesday afternoon.

No identification has yet been made, but police said Mr Bennett’s family are being kept informed of developments.

A large-scale search of the area was mounted after Mr Bennett, who works as a software developer at Durham University, failed to get in touch with friends or family. He was last seen at the Green Welly Stop in Tyndrum at midday on Saturday.

Police Scotland officers were joined by the Search and Rescue Dogs Association Team and mountain rescue teams from Killin, Lomond, Tayside, Arrochar, and the RAF.
