Canadian authorities said Friday that they still are trying to identify the remains of a man whose body was found Sept. 29 along the Niagara Gorge.

The body was discovered by a hiker, between the Whirlpool Bridge and the Spanish Aero Car ride, police said.

He appeared to be in his 40s; approximately 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet, 1 inch tall; and with a very large build. Police said they also located clothing, including brown or beige work-weight pants, a 48-inch waist, with a red tag on the right rear pocket. The tag had the lettering C.M.A. or C.U.A. on it. There was a red pocket knife in the left front pocket.

Police also recovered a black or brown leather belt, size 53 inches; a blue cloth "Timber Run" waist-length jacket with a blue nylon liner and zipper front, size XXXXL; a long-sleeved, purple Minnesota Vikings football sweat shirt in a very large size; and two full-cut black boots with black laces, steel toes and rubber soles and heels.

Police said it was believed the body had been in the gorge for several months.

Anyone with information is asked to call Niagara Regional Police or Crime Stoppers.
