Man found on UK seafront with no idea who he was identified after 3-month probe

A mystery man who did not appear to know who he was when he turned up at a British seafront resort has been identified after a three-month probe.

The man was thought to be aged around 50 when he was found in Weymouth, Dorset, on September 28, 2022.

Police officers were left puzzled when the man, who spoke with an eastern European accent, was unable to tell them who he was or where he was from.

He was wearing a black motorcycle helmet, a black shirt, a black leather jacket, black suit trousers on top of other black trousers, and brown boots.

Dorset Police confirmed on Monday (January 23) that he had now been identified as a 43-year-old man from Latvia.

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."

Officers did not reveal the individual's name or any information about how he ended up in Weymouth.

Police had earlier appealed to members of the public when he was found to help them reveal the man's identity after several months without progress, including communicating with Interpol to discover any international leads.

Police Constable Becky Barnes, of Dorset Police, said at the time: "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."

He was described as being about 5ft 9in and of slim build.
