BETHEL, Alaska (AP) - Authorities have identified a body recently found near Bethel as Preston Rory Michaels.

KYUK (https://is.gd/scrbYF) reports Bethel police were notified of the identity by the state medical examiner’s office.

The body was found late last month on a beach on an island near a fish camp across from the southwest Alaska town, which is located at the mouth of the Kuskokwim River.

Michaels had been missing since December. His disappearance spurred a search on the Kuskokwim River where he was living in a cabin.

A cause of death has not yet been determined.

According to authorities, there were no signs of foul play.
