BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - A body has been found floating in Biloxi’s Back Bay.

Department of Marine Resources Marine Patrol Chief Keith Davis said the body was found Wednesday near the IP Casino and the old Back Bay Bridge.

WLOX-TV (https://bit.ly/1K6A7H1 ) reports authorities believe it could be the same person workers saw swimming in the area before lunch time. After lunch, those same workers reported seeing a body floating north of the casino.

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said no foul play is suspected. The victim has not been identified yet.
