Mne. Luke Ireland went missing whilst on leave after going for a run in the Glen Clova area.  Despite an extensive search involving Tayside Police, five Mountain Rescue teams, three rescue dogs, search helicopters and 250 Royal Marines and Army commandos, the rescue attempt, in appalling weather, was unsuccessful. Police later confirmed that a body found in the Angus Glens was that of the missing Royal Marine.
