7:53 pm on 8 May 2014

A sketch of an unidentified man found dead in a Rotorua park is likely to be released, as work to identify him continues.

The police found the body of the man at Linton Park Reserve on Monday but are still trying to work out who he is.

They believe he died during the weekend and are not treating his death as suspicious.

He is described as Polynesian or Maori, with two large scars on his right arm.

He was wearing a blue cap, red sneakers and a purple basketball singlet.
