Police have released an image of personal effects that were found on the body of a man recovered from the River Tay at Broughty Ferry on Friday
A member of the public made the discovery around 8 a.m. on Friday a short distance from the shoreline between Broughty Castle and the local lifeboat station.
However officers are yet to establish the man’s identity and have released description and a picture of his personal items in a bid to find out who he is.
The photo shows a watch, sunglasses, a comb and a penknife that were found in the man’s possession.
Officers are carrying out enquiries locally in Broughty Ferry, as well contacting neighbouring policing areas and colleagues farther afield in Scotland and the UK to see if the deceased matches any reported missing people.
Enquiries have already been carried out with ships berthed at Dundee Port, where it’s been confirmed that all crew are accounted for and will extend their search for the man’s identity to police colleagues overseas.
Checks are also being made of fingerprint and DNA databases.
He is described as a white male, between 40 to 50 years old, around six foot tall of a stocky, heavy build with brown unkempt hair with a receding hairline and thick greying stubble.
He was wearing a red waterproof style jacket with hood, a beige coloured long sleeve shirt, a woollen snood around his neck, black Dunlop fingerless gloves, green hiking style trousers, navy socks but no footwear.
In his possession he also had two pairs of ear plugs in a plastic box, a set of four gold coloured keys, a red plastic hair comb, a small white pen knife with blade and corkscrew, a Seiko silver metal wrist watch and a pair of large black sunglasses.
Anyone who might be able to help police identify the man or knows of a male fitting this description should contact Police Scotland on 101.
