SAN DIEGO — Investigators trying to identify a man who drowned in the ocean off Pacific Beach last summer released an artist’s rendering of him Friday in hopes of generating a tip from the public.

He was found face-down in the sand off the 4800 block of Ocean Boulevard about 4:45 a.m. July 31, according to San Diego police.

The man, who had no identification on him, appeared to have been about 60 and had five tattoos, including stylized renderings of the sun, a planet with a ring around it, a winged man and an oval with three five-point stars inside it.

Anyone who might be able to help identify him was asked to call SDPD missing-persons detectives at (619) 531-2277.
