Man found on UK seafront with no idea who he is finally identified after three months

The man found on the UK seafront with no idea of who he is has finally been identified.

It has taken police months to figure out who this man was after he was first found in Weymouth, Dorset, on 28 September 2022.

Standing at 5ft 9ins, with a slim build, the man was found wearing black motorcycle helmet with no visor and a black leather jacket.

Police said he was unable to tell Dorset officials who he is or where he is from.

Officials suspected his first language was believed to be Latvian and that he was thought to be aged between 40 and 50 years old.

At the time, Police Constable Becky Barnes said: "We have been continuing to conduct enquiries to try and establish the identity of this man, which have included contact with Interpol and other partner agencies.

"However, we have still been unable to confirm an identity for this man and he has not been able to tell us who he is or provide any information about where he is from or his family.

"He remains in the safe care of the health service and his appearance has changed somewhat since he was first found as he has now cut his hair and beard.

"I am therefore issuing updated images of the man in case it might assist anyone who has information relating to his identity."

Well, Dorset Police have now been able to identify the individual and confirmed on Monday (23 January) that the person is a 43-year-old man from Latvia.

Officers did not reveal his name.

A spokesman for the force said: "Officers who have been making enquiries to establish the identity of a man who was found in Weymouth are pleased to update that his identity has now been established.

"Following public appeals, a member of the public has been able to supply information about his identity – a 43-year-old man from Latvia.

"We would like to thank everyone who shared our appeal or contacted us with information."

In a similar incident back in November, a Brit was discovered naked on a Thai beach with no memory of what had happened following a two-day bender.

The 30-year-old, from Epsom, Surrey, had been celebrating his birthday with beer and marijuana on a sesh that began on 27 October.

He was discovered two days later on 29 October by stunned locals on Koh Samui, stumbling around and singing 'football songs' before he got into the sea and attempted to swim away.

The man had been in the country for a wedding and was travelling on a tourist visa.
