Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Emergency services are responding to an avalanche on the Cairngorm mountains in the Highlands of Scotland, the Northern Constabulary said on its website today.

The avalanche was first reported shortly after 12:30 pm today in the Chalamain Gap area of the Cairngorms, the constabulary said.

A man was airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and mountain rescue teams continued their search for two other people following the avalanche, the police said, without identifying the man.

Police are being assisted by members of the Cairngorm and RAF Lossiemouth mountain rescue teams, search and rescue dogs and an RAF helicopter.
