    UK - Beckingham, Nottingham, 'Caravan Man' WhtMale, 23-57, Mar'14

    Nottinghamshire police have appealed for help in identifying a man found dead in a caravan on a building site off Gringley Rd, Beckingham on March 13th.

    The PM was completed March 24th and established the man had been dead more than 6 weeks, was 5'8" to 5'10", slim to medium build and had collar length, dark wavy hair. His ethnicity is unclear.

    He was wearing a grey Slazenger T-shirt with a round collar, a blue Umbro tracksuit top and a blue Levi denim jacket. His jeans were blue BugJo's and he wore white Slazenger trainers/sneakers.

    'Caravan man' had absolutely nothing else with him (no id/wallet/phone etc) and no distinctive body marks or tattoos. Police obtained fingerprints but there were no hits in the database, so now they are running DNA testing. There were no signs of injury and police don't suspect foul play at this stage.

    Police are asking anyone who might be able to help identify this man to call police on 101 or contact crimestoppers anonymously here:

    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    Most of the caravan sites here opened 1st of March and I guess that is the same country wide? Since the police seem to think he went in for shelter maybe the owners have come this month to "open up" for the year and found him.

    Police say it was 'a static caravan on a building site', so I'm wondering if it was one of those caravans builders sit in to have their tea? But then, if no-one's been in it for 6 weeks, there can't be much building going on....

    I have been reading about so many cases of human slavery/trafficking of men made to work for nothing in England recently, I'm a bit worried about that too.

    This man is thought to be no older than 50, by the way.

    Ah sorry I totally missed the building site part. It could of been or maybe onsite security caravan?

    Just had a look at the road on street view, very nice and expensive area, just off the A161.
