Body found floating in Toledo Bend in Sabine Parish

MANY, LA (KSLA) - A boater on the southern end of Toledo Bend found a body floating in the water late Monday. Now authorities are trying to learn the man's identity.

Sabine Parish Deputy Coroner Ron Rivers says the man is a young white male either in his late teens or early 20s. He was only wearing a pair of swim trunks and had no ID with him.

Rivers says an autopsy will determine if the man died from drowning, a recreational accident, or something else. He says the body has been in the water for several days.

Authorities say the boater who found the body was leaving the Bass Haven Resort.
