Cries for help spark mountain search.

RESCUE teams were today due to resume their search of a mountain after walkers reported cries for help.

Braemar and Cairngorm mountain rescue teams and Grampian Police were out on the summit of Ben Macdui, in the Cairngorms, near Aviemore this morning.

Two hill walkers raised the alarm yesterday after they heard cries from the summit at around 1.15pm.

They were unable to make it to the area where the cries were heard because of the poor weather but told police when they returned to Aviemore.

The pair also met a group of eight walkers who said they had heard someone in difficulty and police are anxious for them to come forward.

An earlier search was called off at 2am because of poor visibility.
