Police fear a man’s remains could remain undiscovered for up to 30 years.

They were unearthed on a cliff between Clifton Beach and Goats Beach on July 6 by a horrified local resident.

Inspector Andrew Keane said that despite lengthy forensic analysis, investigators had been unable to identify the remains.

He said: “Preliminary forensic analysis revealed that the remains belong to a man of Caucasian or Indian subcontinental descent, most likely middle-aged.”

“The remains are believed to have been at this location for at least five to 30 years.”

Police have released images of a shoe, a short-sleeved T-shirt and a lighter found among the remains.

Inspector Keane added: “The remains were found in an area along with a pair of black dress shoes, a short-sleeved top and a plastic bag containing two keys on a key ring, a cigarette lighter and two possible pieces of ID.”

“It is noteworthy that the right shoe had several store-bought insoles on the heel.

“A lengthy forensic analysis was carried out which confirmed the remains were human, but unfortunately identification has not yet been made.”

Police are expected to carry out further in-depth forensic analysis to identify the remains.

Inspector Keane said: “There is no evidence of violence, however police protocols are to treat this matter as suspicious until the evidence indicates otherwise.”

Anyone with information that could help police identify the man is asked to contact Bellerive Police on 131 444 and quote ESCAD 62-06072023.
