Identity of body found in Thames at Wraysbury a mystery

The identity of a man found dead in the River Thames in Berkshire last week remains a mystery and police have appealed for help from the public.

He was found close to Ferry Lane in Wraysbury on 22 August by a passer-by.

Post-mortem tests were unable to ascertain the cause of his death, but at the moment police are not treating it as suspicious.

The man is white, aged between 20 and 40 and of slim build with "a tidy ginger beard".

'Sculpted with trimmers'

Det Con Jon Cairns, from Maidenhead CID, said: "Despite making extensive inquiries we have been unable to identify the man at this time.

"I am keen to hear from anyone who recognises this man or who may have information about his identity."

He said the man's beard appeared to have been sculpted with trimmers and he was about 5ft 10in tall.

The man was wearing a black Slazenger vest, light brown Pierre Cardin trousers which had black tape linking around two of the belt loops acting as a makeshift belt, and white Lonsdale trainers with a blue trim and velcro fasteners.
