The wife and mother of missing hillwalker Tom and Richie Parry said she is 'heartbroken' after two bodies were found by police. 

Tom,49,and his 12-year-old son went missing in Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands after embarking on a walk in tricky weather conditions.

Experienced hikers Tom and Richie had been due to return to their Cheshire home in Alsager on Wednesday after travelling to Glen Nevis and Glencoe.

They had climbed the UK's highest mountain,Ben Nevis,on Monday before travelling to Glencoe on Tuesday,where they set off amid thundery skies. 

But on Thursday,police said they had recovered two bodies in their urgent search for the pair. 

Speaking at the family home,Gemma Parry said: 'I've not heard anything more.'

Asked how she was coping,she said: 'I'm doing the best I can. I'm heartbroken.'

The car the pair was travelling in was found in the Three Sisters car park in Glencoe 

Local football team AFC Alsager previously took to social media to join the appeal in the search for the Parrys.

A spokesperson for the club said Richie had 'recently joined' their under-13s team. 

They added: 'We're all praying that Tom and Richie are both found safe and return home. Our thoughts are with their family and friends.' 

Local church St Mary Magdalene said it would be open on Thursday for anyone 'who wishes to come in and peacefully hold Tom,Richie,and all their family,in their thoughts and prayers.'
