Authorities are seeking assistance in identifying an individual whose body was discovered in the River Thames a decade ago. The incident occurred on August 26, 2013, when reports from a member of the public prompted police to swiftly respond to Bankside Pier in Southwark. The Marine Policing Unit arrived and retrieved the deceased from the water, where he was pronounced dead at the scene. Despite a previous media outreach, including the distribution of an e-fit, the man’s identity remains unknown.
The unidentified individual is described as a Black male, aged between 40 and 50 years old, with a larger build and balding appearance, featuring dark hair on the sides of his head. He was also noted to have a beard and moustache. The man was found fully clothed in a dark blue fleece with a beige shirt underneath, along with two pairs of dark trousers and brown trainers.
Detective Inspector Adrian Smith, representing the Central South BCU responsible for Southwark, expressed hope that someone might recognize the man on the tenth anniversary of the discovery. He urged anyone who may remember him or have information to come forward. Those with details can contact the Central South Missing Persons Unit at 0208 649 2152 or through 101, referencing case number 13FOU007742.
