Police are asking for the public's help to identify a man whose badly decomposed body was found in an Ottawa River reservoir last week.

The body was discovered by a hydro employee Tuesday afternoon at a hydro station near the Chaudière Bridge.

The man's death is not suspicious, police said Monday. Police were checking missing person cases in Ottawa and Gatineau.

Police say it's a white man, about 50 to 65 years old, with a grey unshaven beard.

He was about five feet eight inches tall to six feet two inches tall, weighing anywhere from 190 to 220 pounds.

The man was wearing a green fall hooded jacket, burgundy top, navy blue top, blue top with horizontal lines and navy blue one-piece long johns, police said in a media release.

He was also wearing blue track pants, black Doc Martens industrial boots, and leather or suede work gloves.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 613-236-1222, ext. 5166, or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477 or 1-800-222-8477.
