The man identified as 41 years old Andrew Vine had been swept away by avalanche. Andrew was last seen on the West Face of Aonach Mor, in the Scottish Highlands, at around 1pm on Friday last week.
However, John Stevenson, leader of Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team reported that Mr. Vine and his climbing partner had finished a climb when it seemed they were knocked by an avalanche.
‘We will have to assess things to see when we can resume the search. We need the weather to settle down.’
Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team joined the Search and Rescue Dog Association and other rescue teams – for a six-hour hunt on Friday last week.
