A MYSTERIOUS man with an eastern-European accent has presented himself to police – and has no idea who he is.
Dorset Police officers are trying to trace anyone who can identify the man, believed to be in his 40s or 50s, after he was found in September last year.
Officers located him on Weymouth seafront on September 28, wearing a black motorcycle helmet with no visor, a black shirt, a black leather jacket, black suit trousers on top of other black trousers and brown workman’s boots. He was carrying a black rucksack.
He is described as 5 feet 9 inches tall and of slim build. When he was found he had long, curly matted brown hair and a long brown beard. He speaks with an Eastern European accent, and it is believed his first language is Latvian.
Though he was found in Weymouth, officers have no idea where he has come from or travelled through and are appealing for help to try and piece together his story.
The man is now in the care of the NHS and has undergone a haircut and shaved his beard off.
Police have released new images in the hope someone will recognise him.
PC Becky Barnes, of Dorset Police, said: “We have been continuing to conduct enquiries to try and establish the identity of this man, which have included contact with Interpol and other partner agencies.
“However, we have still been unable to confirm an identity for this man and he has not been able to tell us who he is or provide any information about where he is from or his family.
“He remains in the safe care of the health service and his appearance has changed somewhat since he was first found as he has now cut his hair and beard.
“I am therefore issuing updated images of the man in case it might assist anyone who has information relating to his identity.”
Anyone in Dorset with information about the man’s identity or knowledge of his activities should contact Dorset Police online via www.dorset.police.uk/contact, or by calling 101, quoting incident number 55220158012.
