Police are looking for some help from the public to identify a man that was found dead in Frenchman’s Bay in Pickering.
Termed by the DRPS as a sudden death investigation, officers were called to the area around noon Sunday (May 3) after the man’s body was found in the water.
“With the assistance of the Marine Unit, the body was recovered and sent to the Centre of Forensic Sciences for a post-mortem examination. There were no obvious signs of trauma and investigators have been unable to identify the male,” reads a media release.
The male is described as white, approximately 70-80 years of age, slim build, 160-180 pounds, approximately 5’10” tall. He has grey/white hair with a bald spot on top and a beard. He was wearing khaki pants, dark maroon checkered shirt, red vest with an Arctic Circle-Alaska’s Dalton Highway crest on the left side.
The male may be associated to a submerged 12-foot red aluminum boat which was located in the area.
