Falmouth Packet: Picture of mystery man who washed up naked on Perranporth Beach released: PICTURE Picture of mystery man who washed up naked on Perranporth Beach released: PICTURE

Police have released an artist's impression of the man whose naked corpse washed up on Perranporth Beach.

He is described as white, aged 50-70, of thin build, 5ft 5ins to 5ft 7ins, with white receding hair which was bald on top, and a thick white bushy beard.

DCI Dave Thorne, Senior Investigating Officer, said: “We believe the artist’s impression is a true likeness of the man we are trying to identify.

“As you can see from the image he has some distinctive features including a bushy white beard and white receding hair.

“It’s been a week since his body was found on Perranporth Beach and his identity is still a mystery.

“By releasing this image we are hoping that someone will recognise him and come forward with his name, allowing us to progress with the investigation and bring us a step closer to finding out what has happened to him.

“He is someone’s brother, father, uncle or friend and someone somewhere will be missing him.”

Anyone who recognises the man pictured is asked to call police on 101 quoting log 381 of 1 March.

What a sad incident, he looks of foreign origin to me.

"Age 50-70"

I would think nearer to 70, particularly as he had a black and white photo in his possession.

I'm guessing that the photo that was found in the wallet is of the man himself??? The age of it would certainly fit?

Whereabouts foreign Gill? I agree with you about the age, wouldnt think too many 50 year olds carry around black and white photos unless they were of their grandparents.

I haven't got a clue about him, not least because bearded blokes all look the same to me... or is that beardist?

Perhaps those people that are so sure they know where he didnt come from, to thumb down, might actually like to suggest where he has come from. I see in the updated article the police have had local national and international calls.. Hopefully the poor man will be indentified soon.
