Artist's impression released of man found in the Thames at Windsor 23 years ago

An area wide campaign to identify people who died in fatal incidents over the years has added a new face to the gallery of mystery people.

Operation Nightingale uses modern technology to reconstruct the faces of people whose remains have never been identified.

In 1990 the body of  man was found in the Thames at Windsor and his identity has remained unknown ever since.

He was white, about 30, 6ft tall, with dark brown curly hair and a thin pencil moustache.

A new artist's impression drawn from forensic photographs now shows what he may have looked like.

He was wearing a BHS grey hooded anorak, a BHS blue jumper, Nico pink sports t-shirt and blue denim jeans.

He also wore a gent's wrist watch with a face forged from a USA 20 cent/dollar face.

In his possession he had a betting slip for a £10 win on Midnight Court in the 1.15pm race at Newbury issued on February 24, 1990 at the Clock Tower betting office in Dule Street, Brighton.

Police are emphasising that their interest is solely in the hope of being able to let the man's family and friends know what happened to him.

Anyone who recognises him should call 101 and ask for Thames Valley Police quoting URN 982 12/11/12 or email opnightingale@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk
