Montgomery County police are investigating the death of an unidentified man found in the Potomac River near White’s Ferry on Saturday morning.

At about 10:01 a.m., a boater called police to report a floating body.

Fire and rescue personnel brought the body — a white male wearing blue athletic pants — to shore, and homicide detectives began an investigation, police said.

There was no visible trauma to the body, said Paul Starks, Montgomery County police department spokesman.

The body has been taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy.

Police are working on identifying the man, and believe they have a lead on who he is, Mr. Starks said.

Mr. Starks asked that anyone who is missing someone that matches the brief description of the body contact their law enforcement agency, or call the major crimes division at 240-773-5070.
