He added: "I would ask people to cast their minds back and report anything you think may be important, even if it seemed inconsequential at the time.
"We are also asking local hotels, bed & breakfasts, campsites and taxis to consider whether they may have come into contact with the man described or the other three we believe he was with.
"Officers will continue to carry out enquiries in Fort William into this incident and I'm grateful for the help of all who have already assisted our enquiries."
