The man was found within Herefordshire in November, may possibly be called Roger, and had no memory of who he is or where had come from.

Following a police appeal in January a member of the public reported that they had come across ‘Roger’ in Hereford Bus Station car park on Saturday, November 7, 2015, between 4.20-4.30pm. Roger was seen with another male who helped him to walk to Hereford County Hospital, and as they approached KFC on Stonebow Road an ambulance was passing by in which they flagged down.

The man with Roger is described as white, in his 40s, of a slim build, approximately 5ft 8ins in height with dark wavy hair and glasses. He appeared to be wearing a jacket with long sleeves, combat style trousers and black boots.

Sarah Bennett of West Mercia Police said: “We are appealing locally, nationally and internationally to anyone who can help us trace the man who was seen with Roger.

“He may have vital information that can help us piece together where Roger had been prior to him being found.

“Any information, little as it may be, could be the key to unlocking this mystery.

“This is an unusual situation and we are desperately hoping that we can reunite Roger with his family, wherever they may be. We will also be focusing our appeal on social media with the hash-tag ‘#RogersLostIdentity’, so please share and re-tweets to spread the word.”

Anyone who believes they may have information, as little as it may be, is urged to call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting incident number 309s of 8 November 2015.
