The 64-year-old from Irvinestown in Co Fermanagh, went missing after he went hill-walking on 22 December in the area of Ben Alder and Loch Ossian in the Highlands.

He was last seen leaving the Loch Ossian youth hostel to walk to Culra Bothy.

A police spokesperson said that the body of a climber was found by Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team on Saturday in the Corrour area to the west of Ben Alder.

"Police believe this to be the body of missing climber Michael O'Grady from Northern Ireland, who was reported overdue on 6 January," they explained.

They said the circumstances of the death are not suspicious.

In a previous appeal to the public, police described Mr O'Grady as an experienced hill-walker.
