More than 50 calls have been made to police since an artist’s impression of a man, whose naked body was found on Perranporth beach, was released.

The image, which was made public on Tuesday, has led to local, national and international calls, as well as information provided by the force Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The body of the man; about who almost no information is known, was discovered by dog walker, who stumbled across it on Tuesday February 25.

Apart from one walking shoe and a pair of socks, the man’s body was completely naked. A further extensive search of the beach uncovered a blue jacket, woolly hat, rucksack and wallet containing a picture of a young buy dated ‘April 13 1952’.
