Picture released in bid to identify body

POLICE have issued a reconstructed picture of an unknown man whose body was found in woodland in Dumfries and Galloway.

The discovery was made at Burnside Plantation in Canonbie on 20 December, though it is believed that the man had lain there since late November.

Identification so far has proved impossible, because, though clothed, there were no clues to his identity barring an Italian daily paper found nearby.

The man is described as between 40 and 60 years of age, about 5ft 8in tall and with a bald head. He had slight grey stubble on his face and a small scar on his lower right abdomen. He also had six teeth missing with some evidence one tooth may have been extracted in the last six months.

He was wearing an olive green safari-type hat, a tan-coloured jacket, black trousers, light-coloured gloves and grey ankle boots.
