Thames Valley Police has added a new case to Operation Nightingale, a force-wide campaign to identify the deceased from unrelated historic fatal incidents.

1990 Windsor is the case of a man whose body was found in the River Thames near Windsor, Berkshire, in April 1990. His identity remains unknown.

An artist’s impression of the man, drawn from forensic photographs, shows what he may have looked like when alive.

He was white, around 30 years old, about 6ft, with dark brown curly hair and a thin pencil moustache.

He was wearing a BHS grey hooded anorak, a BHS blue jumper, Nico pink sports t-shirt and blue denim jeans.

Most notably, he was also wearing a gent’s wrist watch with a face formed from what's thought to be a USAtwenty cent piece (actual watch pictured).

In his possession, the man had a betting slip for a £10 win on Midnight Court in the 1.15pm race at Newbury, issued at 11.05am on 24 February 1990 at the Clock Tower Betting Office in Duke Street, Brighton.

Police believe he may have known people in the Brighton area.

Renewed police activity to find the identity of this man is solely in the hope of being able to let his family and friends know what happened to him.

If you remember or recognise this man, please call 101 or email [opnightingale@
