Police are seeking the public’s help identifying the man whose body was found in a North Jersey state forest.

The man has a light complexion and is estimated to be between 20 and 40 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall and 171 pounds, police said. He has a large scar on his right knee as well as several tattoos, pictured above using graphics created by the New Jersey State Police Forensic Imaging Unit.

The man was wearing a black “Swiss Tech" hooded jacket, a gray “Members Mark" thermal long-sleeve shirt, “Rustler" denim jeans, brown “Brahma" leather boots, "Haines" blue and green plaid boxer shorts, black “FG" work gloves, a red knit hat, and a gray fabric face mask, state police said.

He was also found with a black magnetic compass, a "Life Straw" water filtration straw, a fire starter and a small piece of tinfoil, authorities said.
