Appeal to identify man

Friday, December 8, 2023

Yesterday afternoon the body of a man was found in a field on Dean Brook, near to Horrobin Lane, Rivington and he has yet to be identified.


The man is approximately 40-50 years old, with a dark goatee-style beard, cropped dark but slightly greying hair, of medium to large build. He was wearing a green ‘Foxy’ jacket, black ‘Slazenger’ tracksuit bottoms, a white/grey ‘Soulcal & Co’ t-shirt, and green coloured wellington boots. He was also wearing a distinctive orange coloured ‘Casio’ digital watch. We’ve attached a picture of this. He had no obvious tattoos or scars.


There is no connection to the ongoing search for missing Brian Blakeman near Skelmersdale.


The man was found at 14:50 hours on Thursday. At this time the death is not being treated as suspicious.


Despite our best efforts we have yet to identify the man and we are asking for anyone who knows who it might be to get in touch.


Anyone with information should call us on 101 quoting log 0783 of December 7.
