DETECTIVES are now investigating the mysterious case of a body found in a river.
Police believe the man pulled from the River Colne on Tuesday is from Eastern Europe, but he has still not been identified.
His body was recovered by firefighters from the water behind the Syngenta chemical plant off Leeds Road.
Officers have so far been unable to identify him but believe he is Lithuanian or has links to the country.
Detectives from the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team (HMET) are still investigating but a post mortem carried out on the body proved to be inconclusive regarding the cause of death.
Det Chief Insp Scott Wood from HMET, said: “We have carried out various tests but so far have been unable to identify this man. “Someone out there is missing a son or a husband or a close friend.
“It is important that we trace who this man is and we need the public’s help to be able to do that.
“I am appealing to anyone out there who might be able to help – you might just be a householder who hasn't seen their neighbour for some time and has started to become suspicious.
“If that person is you then please get in touch.”
The man is white, European and possibly aged between 30 and 40.
He was 5ft 10ins tall, of slim build and with short cropped light brown hair.
He had a ginger moustache and close cropped beard and was wearing an orange coloured rubber sports type bracelet that had Lithuanian writing on it, which when translated reads: “Sport – yes, drugs – No.”
Anyone who thinks they know this man is asked to contact police on 101.
