Does someone know this man?

After fingerprint and dental record checks failed, the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office hopes this drawing will help end a three-month attempt to identify a man’s body found floating Oct. 18 in Rollins Lake.

The man was fully clothed with a duffel bag around his neck. The bag contained clothing, cologne, an electric shaver and other items.

A KIA car key and a man’s wedding ring were found in his pockets.

His age is anywhere from 25 to 70, his race possibly Hispanic, Asian or Native American.

Investigators are awaiting a Chico expert’s analysis of the bones, which might help narrow the age gap and identify his ethnic origin.

Anyone with possible information on the case is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 265-1471.
