POLICE are still trying to identify a body recovered from a muddy riverbank on the River Ouse, near York at the weekend.

It may be some days before they can identify the remains found at Acaster Malbis, which were spotted by a member of the public.

North Yorkshire Police have said it is not that of missing accountant 29-year-old Chris Baker who disappeared in York before Christmas.

The Northern Echo: Chris Baker

They have been liaising with other forces around the country to check if the body could have been from outside York and North Yorkshire. 

Police are treating the death as “unexplained.”
