Police hope a distinctive watch could be the key to identifying a man's body, found at a waterfall in Powys.

The man, who was aged around 60, was recovered from Rhiwargor waterfall near Lake Vyrnwy on 23 May.

His watch has a black face bearing a silver New Zealand fern emblem.

It is thought the body had been in the water for between a week and a month. Police have so far failed to indentify him.

He was white, 5ft 11 ins (1.8m) tall with ginger hair, said Dyfed-Powys Police.


The man was carrying a money pouch and a rucksack. He wore glasses and was wearing cold weather clothing.

Det Insp Diane Davies said: "We are urgently trying to identify him so that his next of kin can be informed and arrangements made for his funeral.

"We have been in contact with all other police forces throughout the country but potential identities have now been exhausted."
