More than a year after a man's body was discovered in a tent in northeast Calgary, investigators are seeking the public's help to find out who he was.

The dead man was found in Monterey Park in August of last year, near 32nd Avenue and Burroughs Manor N.E.

Inside the tent, they also found a laptop and paperwork that had content related to betting on horse races. They also found a potential alias, Thanh Nguyen.

But police haven't been able to get in touch with any family of the man, whose identity remains "unconfirmed" despite the efforts of the medical examiner's office.

"By releasing this sketch, we hope someone out there will be able to provide us his name, so that we can bring answers to his family who are out there not knowing what has happened to him," Staff Sgt. Brad Moore said in a statement.

Police describe the man as being of Asian descent, between the ages of 40 and 50, weighing about 135 pounds and standing five feet six inches. He had long white and grey hair, as well as a goatee.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
