Police are still trying to identify the body of a man who washed up on a Sussex beach two years ago.

A facial reconstruction has been made in hope that someone may recognise the man found on Cooden Beach in East Sussex on November 22 2012.

The man is described as being white, about 5’8”with size nine feet.

He has distinctively shaped teeth, with a noticeable underbite.

When found, he was wearing a pair of underpants with Athena branded on the waistband.

It is thought that he may have been at sea for some time.

The case has been referred to the National Missing Persons Bureau, and DNA checks have been made periodically, but all to no avail.

Anyone who may know the identity of the man should call Sussex Police on 101 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk and ask for their information to be referred to the coroner’s office at Hastings police station.
