Calgary police are hoping the release of a sketch will help identify a man found in the river in June.

Police believe the man’s death is non-criminal, but they haven’t been able to identify him or notify next of kin.

The man’s body was found June 12 on the east side of the Bow River roughly 100 metres south of the Calf Robe Bridge.  The Calgary Fire Department retrieved the body and the medical examiner said the death wasn’t suspicious.

To date, all traditional methods of identifying a suspect haven’t worked.

“We know that somewhere out there a family is looking for answers about their loved one and we hope the public will be able to help us bring those answers home,” said Const. Gord Fraser of the CPS Missing Persons Team.

According to police, the man is between 30 and 50 years old, roughly 6’4”, and 245 lbs. with a light skin tone. He had a bald or shaved head.

Police say it’s believed the man was experiencing homelessness at the time of his death.

Anyone with information on the man’s identity is asked to call the Calgary police at 403-266-1234.
