A report was received of a body in the water off Preston Island in the Firth of Forth around 8.40am on Wednesday, 5 August, 2020.

The death is currently being treated as unexplained and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal in due course.

Officers are now appealing for information which could help identify the man.

He is described as white, 5 ft 10 ins and aged between 40 – 60. He has dark hair which is beginning to grey slightly and is bald on top.

He was wearing black Nike trainers, black 3/4 length Lonsdale jogging bottoms, a black Lonsdale hooded tracksuit top, and a Primark khaki green t-shirt with “DOWNTOWN” and the number “1989” written on it along with the picture of a skyline.

Cowdenbeath Inspector Gavin Cameron said: “If you have any knowledge about who this man is, or any information about why or where he went into the water, please call police on 101, quoting reference number 0602 of 5 August. We really want to let his family know what has happened to him.”
