Police seek help identifying human remains

Police are looking for help identifying human remains found along the Ottawa River off of Division Road in Wendover.

They say on Tuesday, April 18, members of the OPP and Forensic Identification Services Unit went to a residence where the remains were found. The body was removed from the river and brought to the Ottawa Hospital for a post mortem, police say.

The body has not been identified but police say it is of a man between 40 and 50 years of age, about six feet in height, with a shaved head and stubble on his face.

Police say he was wearing:

–       Size 11, black “Airwalk” running shoes, with a distinctive fluorescent yellow/green sole and tongue

–       Olive coloured jacket with zipper up the front, a quilted liner and velcro wrist cuffs

–       A dark long sleeved shirt with a knitted greyish/blue coloured sweater over top

–       Black nylon track pants with a two tone grey strip on the side of the leg

–       White or grey long underwear and maroon coloured thick wool socks

They are asking anyone who might be able to help identify the man to get in touch with the Rockland OPP detachment at 613-446-5124 or 1-888-310-1122
