THE identity of a man found in a Leominster park remains a mystery, police have confirmed.

The man was taken ill and found at the Grange park on August 2.

He was taken to hospital in Hereford where he died four days later.

The mystery man was described as white, in his 40s, and of large build. He was wearing glasses, had a goatee beard, a greying moustache and brown wavy hair.

He had no tattoos or scars, but was wearing an extremely distinctive shirt when he was found.

Speaking at the time, Sergeant Tony Lewis of West Mercia Police urged anyone who might have known the man or have any information as to his identity to come forward.

"He may have family or loved ones so anything, no matter how small it may seem, could help us to identify him and get in touch with them," he said.

But so far their efforts to identify the man remain unsuccessful, and it is not known whether he was a visitor to the town or a resident.

Anyone with information or who may know the man is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting incident 751S of 2 August.
