Search underway for missing hill-walker (60s) last seen yesterday
A search mission is underway for a hillwalker who went missing yesterday evening.
The man, who is understood to be aged in his 60s and from the UK, was climbing Mount Brandon along the Dingle Peninsula in Co Kerry.
He set out for his walk alone at around 11am and his concerned wife contacted Kerry Mountain Rescue when she didn't hear from him after 3pm.
Kerry Mountain Rescue and Dingle Coastguard began looking for him yesterday evening but the search had to be called off overnight due to heavy fog.
The search has resumed this morning.
RTE News reports that the helicopter crew of Rescue 115 will help with the search.
