A possible sighting of missing Hampshire man Jason Gates is being investigated by police.

The 36-year old was reported missing on 17 March after his dog Max was linked to an incident in which three sheep were killed.

A member of the public reported seeing a man matching Jason's description near the Abriachan woodlands car park, on the Great Glen Way, on Sunday.

A jacket found near to where the dog was found has been identified as his.

Police have appealed to anyone who was in the area on Sunday and may have seen the man to contact them.
