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

Police and mountain rescue teams were leading a search for Bishopbriggs man Daniel Bennett, 43, who was last seen in Tyndrum on Saturday.

Officers found the body of a man in the area of Ben Oss on Tuesday afternoon.

No identification has yet been made, but 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.
