Police and mountain rescuers have appealed for information about two climbers missing on Ben Nevis.
Tim Newton, 27, and Rachel Slater, 24, from the Bradford area, had been climbing on the mountain over the weekend.
They are believed to have been camped behind the CIC hut, below the north face of the mountain, in a green tent.
Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team carried out searches on Monday night with further searches now under way.
Anyone with information about the missing couple should contact the police in Fort William.
Police Scotland have released a picture of the couple and said they would have been wearing climbing gear similar to that seen in the photograph.
