Guernsey Police have confirmed the death of a 53-year-old man whose body was found at Icart Point on Saturday morning.
The circumstances surrounding his death have not been confirmed though with the investigating officers keen to speak to anyone who may have seen him before he made his way to the cliff path.
Guernsey Police have said the gentleman did not live in the island, and it is not known if all of his next of kin have been informed of his passing so his identity hasn't yet been revealed.
They have however said he was a "5'10" white male, of stocky build, with short, brown hair on the back and sides, bald on top". When he was last seen on Friday evening he was wearing a blue Anfield (Liverpool football) polo shirt, with blue denim shorts, grey walking boots and he was carrying a black rucksack.
Guernsey Police said he had spent Friday evening at Les Douvres Hotel, and was last seen in the area of La Motte, St Martin’s, heading towards Saints Road at 23:40.
Anyone who saw him there or on his way to Icart is asked to contact Guernsey Police on 725111 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
