Search For Man Continues

The search for a man who fell through ice on a remote loch will resume for a third day, say police.

Police divers stood down from their operation as it turned dark yesterday but will continue as early as possible today. 

Emergency services were scrambled to the remote location of Dow Loch in the Cleish area of Perthshire after the alarm was raised at 3pm on Monday. 

Two rescue helicopters and a full Scottish Fire and Rescue Service water rescue team and supporting personnel were called to the scene along with local fire crews. 

Despite working for two days in cold conditions the man has not been found.
