BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Harrison County officials are trying to reach family members of a 36-year-old man whose body was found floating in Biloxi’s Back Bay near the IP Casino Resort.

Coroner Gary Hargrove tells The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1TV42bh) there are no signs of foul play but the death remains under investigation.

Hargrove says construction workers saw the man swimming Wednesday morning around 11 a.m. When they came back from lunch, the body was motionless.

He says the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources and the Biloxi Police Department responded and the body was recovered.

Hargrove said the man has been identified but his name won’t be released until next of kin is notified.
