    From BBC News article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotlan...lands-35846035

    "Searches are being made of Loch Ness and the surrounding area for a man reported missing from Hampshire.
    The RNLI and coastguard have been searching the loch's Urquhart Bay while police have been looking in and around the nearby village of Drumnadrochit."
    Where are you?

    Officers believe he might have been in the Drumnadrochit area on Monday, March 14.

    Mr Gates is described as being around 6ft 3, of a slim build, with short cropped greying hair and facial stubble. It is not known what clothes he is wearing, however he often wears black jeans, a T-shirt, a black padded jacket and tweed jacket, and possibly walking boots.

    This is a weird one.

    I live in Aviemore. We live beside a large mountain range called The Cairngorms, and there is a lot of rural space nearby.

    On monday the 14th He was in Drumnadrochit, 15 miles away (as the crow flies). He was walking his dog, and the dog (a spaniel) got into a field of sheep and killed some. Then he vanished, and was seen in Aviemore, hence them looking for him here. If he's distraught about his dog (which after attacking the sheep is likely to be put to sleep) he could be up the mountain. It's just such an odd story.

    It's been mild here in the last week (it's winter here, and we can get bad winters), but very cold at night and parts of the mountain have snow on them. If he's up there without equipment then he won't survive. The mountain range has skiing stations and bothys (small, simply built huts that people keep basics in for lost travellers dotted around the mountains), but it's very much wild wilderness. No predators (other than wildcats, which are only slightly bigger than a house cat).

    So as long as he stay's away from the loch and Nessie he doesn't need to worry about that. I hope he's warm and safe somewhere..

    The family of Jason Gates, who is missing from the Drumnadrochit area, have released a statement and appeal:
    As a family, were very grateful to members of the emergency services and search and rescue personnel who continue the search for Jason.

    Wed like to thank members of the local community for their assistance and to everyone who has shared the appeal via social media.

    Its been over three weeks since weve heard from Jason and we are increasingly anxious.

    We'd also like to appeal to Jason directly: if you can see this message, please make contact so we know youre ok.

    This is very sad news but at least some relief to the family to have found him.
