He was last seen on Saturday


A man’s body has been found in the area of Ben Oss, a mountain in Scotland, during searches for the missing Durham University doctor Daniel Bennett. 

Bennett, a software developer at the Centre of Evaluation and Monitoring, went missing around midday on Saturday 21st March. He was last seen in Tyndrum and is believed to have gone for a walk in the surrounding hills.

The police and mountain rescue teams began searching for him when he was reported missing after he failed to make contact with his family or friends since Saturday.


Police Scotland have now recovered a man’s body after “a large scale operation involving Police Scotland, Killin Mountain Rescue Team, Lomond Mountain Rescue Team, Tayside Mountain Rescue Team, Arrochar Mountain Rescue Team, Search and Rescue Dogs Association and RAF Mountain Rescue Team”.

They are yet to identify the body, but Bennett’s family have been informed of the development in the search.
