    The Scotsman says he was last seen near Aird Uig, which is a remote hamlet on the NW coast of Lewis. Unfortunately that's a very rocky coastline with the sea right up against the base of the cliffs at all times. If he's fallen from the cliffs there's no chance he's still alive.

    I'm afraid I agree with Melmouththelost . The SAR teams in this part of the world are VERY good at their job, & it appears there have been extensive searches.

    Pretty inevitable in the circumstances. His body was found just along the coast, a mile or so east of where he was last seen.
