Police are hunting for the family of a man whose ashes they believe are inside a wooden box they were handed.

Last week Hornby Police were handed the box which, on the front had a photo of a man they presume the ashes are from.

"Police are seeking anyone who may be able to identify the man in the photograph so the ashes can be returned to his family or friends," they said.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Senior Constable Michael Glenday at Hornby Police on (03) 344 0698 and quote file number 160708/8503.
