POLICE are appealing to the public for their help in identifying a man who died after collapsing while out jogging.

Emergency services were called at approximately 5.55pm on Saturday following reports of a concern for welfare of a man who was out jogging and had collapsed on the A4440 Crookbarrow Way in Worcester. The man was taken to hospital but died later that evening. Detective Sergeant David Hall from West Mercia Police said: “It is unusual for us to have been unable to identify someone but despite numerous enquiries, we haven’t been able to identify this man.

“While we are not treating his death as suspicious, we desperately want to get in touch with this man’s family and friends so that he can be put to rest.

“Unfortunately he did not have any distinguishing marks such as scars or tattoos and the only possessions he had on him were a key and a silver Seiko watch.

“We are hoping that by releasing his description to the public it will encourage people to take the time to think about family, friends or neighbours who may fit the description and who have not been seen since yesterday.”

The man is described as white, between 40 and 50 years old, around 5ft 10in tall and of larger build. He had brown eyes and short, dark brown hair with grey roots.

He was wearing black Karrimor running leggings, a black long-sleeved Karrimor running jacket, white socks, black Pro Touch trainers and a silver Seiko watch.

Anyone who recognises the man from the description is asked to contact West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident number 565s of 16 February.
