Police searching for father and son Tom Parry, 49, and Richie Parry, 12, who went missing after going hillwalking in Glencoe in the Highlands, have found two bodies. 

Mr Parry and his son had been due to return to their Cheshire home in Alsager on Wednesday after travelling to Glen Nevis and Glencoe.

Police previously confirmed they had found Mr Parry’s car in the Three Sisters car park in Glencoe where they stopped on Tuesday to go hillwalking.

The pair’s family has been informed, although the bodies have yet to be formally identified. 

A massive search for the pair was mounted on Wednesday involving mountain rescue teams and a coastguard helicopter.

The car the pair was travelling in was found in the Three Sisters car park in Glencoe 

But today Police Scotland said that two bodies have been found during a search in Glencoe Wednesday evening.

‘They are yet to be formally identified. However, the family of father and son Tom Parry, 49, and Richie Parry, 12, from Cheshire, who had been reported missing in the area, have been made aware,’ said the force.

‘Enquiries are ongoing but there are no apparent suspicious circumstances.

‘A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal in due course.’

Inspector Craig Johnstone said: ‘Our thoughts are with all those involved. I would like to thank all emergency services and mountain rescue volunteers.’

It is believed that the weather was not ideal when they began their walk.

Local football team AFC Alsager previously took to social media to join the appeal in the search for the Parrys.

A spokesperson for the club said Richie had ‘recently joined’ their under-13s team. 

They added: ‘We’re all praying that Tom and Richie are both found safe and return home. Our thoughts are with their family and friends.’
