Body Found In River

POLICE are appealing for help in identifying a man whose body was found in a river in Ewell.

Officers attended Green Lanes, Ewell, at around 11:20am following reports a body had been seen in Hogsmill River.

The body was subsequently recovered. Police have conducted a number of enquires but the individual has yet to be identified and officers are now appealing for help from the public.
The man is described as around 5ft 10 inches tall, of medium build, and aged around 50-60 years. He was wearing grey jogging bottoms, a brown bomber-style jacket, a light blue t-shirt and black socks. He has short grey hair, which appears to have been recently cut, and a few days of stubble. No documentation which could identify him was found and enquiries are ongoing.
Detective Inspector David Cooper, of Surrey Police, said: “We continue to conduct a number of enquiries both in Surrey and with surrounding forces but at present this individual remains unidentified. I am appealing for anyone who recognises his description or who has information which could assist us to contact Surrey Police on 0845 1252222 so we can identify this man.
“An investigation into how he came to be in Hogsmill River is also ongoing. A post mortem examination will be conducted later this week to establish the cause of death.”
