Missing Brit hiker Esther Dingley ‘may have been killed by a mountain bear’

MISSING Brit hiker Esther Dingley may have been killed by a mountain bear, it is feared.

The 37-year-old posted a Facebook snap of what appeared to be a large paw print in snow on the Pyrenees five days before she disappeared.

She asked: “Can anyone let me know if this might have been bear prints?”

Brown bears have attacked livestock and threatened humans in the area on the France-Spain border since being introduced in the late ’90s in an EU biodiversity plan.

Esther’s partner Dan Colegate, 38, from Durham, stayed in their camper van when Esther, from Aylesbury, Bucks, set off to the top of the 8,983ft Pic de Sauvegarde a month ago.

Meanwhile, the hunt continued for a man who gave her a lift three days before she was reported missing on November 25
