The Defiance County Sheriff’s Department is looking for information about a man recovered from the Maumee River at the Cecil Road Bridge in Paulding County on May 24.

The white man was 5 feet, 4 inches tall, weighed 153 pounds and had piercings in both of his ears. The man also had two tattoos on his body, a statement from the sheriff’s office said.

A tattoo on his right side said ‘music’ and one on his right shoulder said ‘Gemini’ with stars below it.

The Lucas County coroner was not able to determine how long the body had been in the river, the sheriff said.

Anyone with information about the man is asked to call the sheriff's department at 419-784-1155 or use its app tips section.
