SHELBY, Miss. (AP) - Bolivar County authorities are seeking help in identifying the body of a man found Monday in the Mississippi River near Shelby.

Sheriff Kelvin Williams tells The Bolivar Commercial (https://bit.ly/1nAI7DZ ) the body was spotted by a fisherman and was recovered about 6 p.m. Monday.

Williams says the body appeared to be a black male of undetermined age between 35-50 years of age. He says the body may have been in the water for a couple of weeks or longer.

Williams says law enforcement agencies upriver will be contacted to see if they have any missing persons.

He says there was no identification on the body, which has been turned over the coroner for an autopsy.
