Fresh police appeal after clothes are found on Portsmouth beach
DETECTIVES are searching for clues after a full set of men's clothing was discovered on a beach in Eastney.
The pile of men’s clothing was discovered on the beach close to the Coffee Cup café and the pitch and putt golf course on Tuesday.
It sparked a widespread search by police and coastguards for a potential missing person in the area – although this hunt was called off later that afternoon.
The items found included a brown leather jacket, a grey polo style shirt, dark grey fleece jogging bottoms, white Slazenger trainers –size 10 – and a vaping stick.
Detective Constable David Sheppard from Fratton CID is now appealing for help.
He said: ‘If you recognise these clothes and can potentially identify the owner, please contact me on 101 quoting 44160459352.
‘You may have seen a man sitting alone on the beach that morning – if so, please get in touch.’
