Police and mountain rescue experts were to decide today whether to resume the search for two soldiers missing in the Scottish Highlands. L/Cpl Paul Callaghan, 26, and Pte David Reid, 24, have not been seen since Friday. Rescuers, who yesterday found an ice axe belonging to one of the men, were forced to call off the search as night fell. Conditions in the Glencoe area were said to be atrocious, with bitter cold, snow and poor visibility.
