Police in Kakamas are appealing to the community to assist them in identifying a man and locating his next of kin.

The body of a man between the ages of 40 and 50 was found in the canal on 3 November near Alheit, Kakamas.

The person is described by police as slender-built and approximately 1,64 m tall with short curly black hair and brown eyes.

He was dressed in a blue T-shirt, blue jeans and was wearing black and white tekkies.

Capt. Francois Steenkamp says that the person must have been in the canal for almost a week.
