Can you identify a man, whose dead body was found floating in Greenland Dock, Rotherhithe, SE16 six months ago? Southwark police is making a renewed appeal to the public asking for their assistance in identifying him.
Police were called to the dock at 16:40hrs on 18 September 2012 after members of the public saw the body in the water. The Metropolitan Police Service's Marine Policing Unit recovered the body.
A post-mortem examination was conducted at Greenwich Mortuary on 19 September 2012. Police are treating the death as unexplained, but not suspicious.
Southwark CID has released an artistic impression of the man's face in the hope that someone will recognise him.
The man is described as black, giving the appearance of being aged in his early to mid-thirties. He is described as being 6' 2" (1.89 metres) tall and of heavy build.
The body was fully clothed, wearing a black 'Tommy Hilfiger' long-sleeved T-shirt, blue jeans with a belt, and black 'Kangol' slip on shoes.
Greenland Dock is situated close to the busy Surrey Quays Shopping Centre and Leisure Park, and is served by Surrey Quays and Canada Water Underground stations and Greenland Pier river boat terminal.
Detective Inspector Ed Facer, of Southwark CID, said: "It is difficult to believe that the man has not been missed by someone over the last six months - be it a family member, friend, neighbour, work acquaintance or member of the deceased's local community. I would ask the public to spend a moment to look at the artist impression, together with the physical and clothing description provided, and contact the police if they have any information."
Anyone with information should contact Southwark CID on or call Crimestoppers on .
