Police in western Michigan say they're trying to confirm the identity of a man whose body was found in the flood-swollen Grand River near where it enters Lake Michigan.

The Grand Haven public safety department says workers at a marina were moving logs that had jammed against their docks when they spotted the body about 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

WGHN-AM reports that Chief Jeff Hawke says authorities think they know the name of the victim but are awaiting confirmation. He says an autopsy is being held to determine the cause of death.

The Grand Haven Tribune says the man was white, bald, wore a shirt with an American flag on it and had a tattoo on one leg.
