Body Found In River Colne

Thursday, September 13th 2012 01:00

Detectives working to identify man pulled from the water.

Police are appealing for help in identifying the body of a man pulled from the River Colne in Huddersfield.

The grim find was made on Tuesday and it's thought that he is either Lithuanian or has links to that country.

A post mortem proved to be inconclusive.

Detective Chief Inspector Scott Wood of the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: "We have carried out various tests but so far have been unable to identify this man. Someone out there is missing a son or a husband or a close friend. It is important that we trace who this man is - and we need the publics' help to be able to do that.

"I am appealing to anyone out there who might be able to help - you might just be a householder who hasn't seen their neighbour for sometime and has started to become suspicious. If that person is you then please get in touch."

The man is described as white, European and possibly aged between 30 and 40.

He was 5'10" tall, of slim build and with short cropped light brown hair. He had a ginger moustache and close cropped beard.

The man was wearing an orange coloured rubber sports type bracelet that had Lithuanian writing on it which when translated reads: "Sport - yes, drugs - No."

Anyone who thinks they know this man is asked to contact police on 101. If your first language is not English then there are facilities to be able to help you.
