Appeal after personal items found by canal

We’re appealing for information after belongings were found at the side of the canal off of Gray Street in Birmingham earlier today (13 October). 
A pair of shoes, glasses and house keys were found by a member of the public who alerted officers around 10.30am this morning.

These items were found by the canal in Birmingham

This has understandably raised concerns and we are working to trace the person these items belong to. We have thoroughly searched the canal and sent a drone to look at the area and surrounding roads, and have been speaking to residents and partner agencies.
Despite extensive searches we have not found anything and need to make sure the owner of the items is safe and well. 
If you recognise the items in these photos or have information that could help, please get in touch via Live Chat on our website between 8am and midnight or call 101 at any time.
