South Wales Police is appealing for information after the body of a man was found on Porthcawl Beach at around 10.20am yesterday (Saturday, March 5).
Despite extensive enquiries being carried out in the last 24 hours, his identity is still unknown.
Enquiries are continuing to identify him and also the circumstances, which do not appear to be suspicious at this time, surrounding his death.
The man is described as white, 5ft 6in tall, of thin to average build, with short grey hair.
He has no apparent distinctive markings such as tattoos, and was wearing black Mishansha trainers and a grey jumper with black stripes across the chest area.
Checks are also being made with neighbouring police forces for reports of any missing men matching the description.
Detective Inspector Dan Michel, from South Wales Police, said: “In ideal circumstances we would want to establish the man’s identity and contact next of kin before making a public appeal.
“But despite carrying out extensive enquiries since his body was found on Saturday morning and we are still no closer to finding out who he is.
“We would appeal for anyone with information to please contact South Wales Police.”
