A British tourist missing in Peru was seen by a local shortly after he was reported to have disappeared, a charity has said.
Harry Greaves went missing on 7 April after he announced plans to spend a day on a solo mountain walk.
A spokesman for the Lucie Blackman Trust, which is helping with the search, said he was reportedly seen heading towards the village of Pisac.
The charity is focusing its efforts around the area.
It is using drones to scour the region, although the sighting is unconfirmed.
Mr Greaves, who is originally from Bronygarth near Oswestry, Shropshire, was expected to return on 10 April.

Mr Greaves, who lives in Wrexham, arrived in Peru on 20 February, and attended a permaculture course before visiting friends.
He had emailed his family twice to tell them how much he was enjoying the visit.
The family of the 29-year-old furniture-maker set up a fundraising page to find him, which has raised £21,000.
“He is an extremely genuine and caring person who acts from his heart and with pure integrity,” his family wrote on the page.
