The body of Grant Cunliffe, missing in the Cairngorms since January, has finally been found.
Grant, 49, from North Yorkshire, is believed to have walked into Corrour Bothy in the Lairig Ghru on Wednesday 18 January, intending to go hillwalking for a couple of days before returning home. He did not return from his trip and was reported overdue on Saturday 21 January.
A major search was carried out at the time in the hills around Corrour bothy - Angel's Peak, Devil's Point, Cairn Toul and surrounding corries - but no trace was found at that time or subsequently. His body was finally discovered last week in the Braeriach area, and police released his name on Saturday.
Grant's sister-in-law Jean Tunstill has contacted us to say:
'Just to let everyone at UKC/UKH know that Grant Cunliffe was found on Thursday 7th June. The family thank you all for your kindness and thoughts since Grant went missing in January.'
Our thoughts go out to the family at this difficult time.
