The police are hoping that an image of a facial reconstruction for the body of a man which was found in Balmore will jog people’s memories and help them to identify him.

The badly decomposed body was found in 2011 on Saturday, October 19 in a remote area of woods near to Golf Course Road at Glen Orchard Road, Balmore.

There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death and the police believe that the remains were there for between six to nine months.

The police have now issued a picture of what he looked like as they’ve been unable to find out who he is.

The man is described as white, between 20 and 35 years of age and 5ft eight inches to 6ft one inches tall with light brown hair. He was wearing a light-blue polo shirt from Topshop, a blue jacket with a knitted band around the collar with a white band with a “Southern Green Pennsylvania” motif written on the left chest. He was also wearing

blue jeans and dark training shoes.

Detective Sergeant Kerr Duncan, said: “Sadly, despite previous appeals and extensive police enquiries

carried out, this man has not been identified.

“I hope that the images released today of a facial reconstruction and the man’s clothing will jog someone’s memory, and finally we may be able to find out who this man is and contact his family.”

Anyone with information should contact London Road Police Office in Glasgow on 0141 532 4600, or contact 101 the

non-emergency number for Police Scotland. Alternatively CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111, if you would like to remain anonymous.

Detective Sergeant Kerr added: “I would like thank the team of forensic anthropologists at Dundee University’s Centre for anatomy and human identification for all the work they did on this case.”
