Scientists have reconstructed the face of a man found dead in a wood a year ago to help police identify him.

His skeletal remains were discovered by a forestry worker near to the Bathurst Estate in Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

Gloucestershire Police have a full DNA profile of the man which has been checked against the national database and missing person’s database with negative results.

The force asked Professor Caroline Wilkinson, director of Liverpool John Moores University’s Face Lab, to produce a 2D image of the man.

His death is not being treated as suspicious, but police are now appealing for the public’s help to name the man now that they have an image of what he looked like.

The force also enlisted the help of a forensic anthropologist and odontologist who concluded that the man was white and of a large build, between 5ft 5in and 5ft 8in tall and likely aged between 28 and 31 – but could be as old as 55.
