GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities in western Michigan say it may take days to determine the identity of a man whose body kayakers found in the Grand River, southwest of Grand Rapids.

The Ottawa County sheriff’s department says the body was found around 5 p.m. Sunday in Jenison, an unincorporated community in Georgetown Township.

Sheriff’s Capt. Mark Bennett tells The Grand Rapids Press that the man didn’t have identification on him, and investigators believe his body was in the water for several days.

Bennett says it may take dental records to determine the man’s identity.
