SEMINARY, Miss. (AP) — Authorities are trying to identify a body found in a south Mississippi creek popular with boaters.

Covington County Coroner Chris Daquila tells WDAM-TV that the body was found Saturday in Okatoma Creek.

He says a group of people were canoeing when they spotted a floating body.

Daquila says the body was decomposed when authorities retrieved it from the creek and they couldn’t immediately identify it. Daquila says officials are still working to figure out who died and to determine the cause of death.
