Police are still working to identify a body found in Beggar's Tick Marsh by a Parks & Recreation employee Tuesday.

The Oregon State Medical Examiner found no signs of trauma to the body.

Police believe the person had been in the water for at least two months.

The person is described as a white male, 50 to 60 years old, about 5'5" tall with a medium build, light facial hair or stubble, missing some teeth, wearing Nike velcro-strap shoes, hospital-type ankle socks with grip on the bottom, and dark-colored denim pants. In his possession was a key fob to a Ford vehicle, other keys stamped "Curly's" (which investigators believe to be Curly's Locksmith in Vancouver), wearing some jewelry, including a ring with a Harley Davidson logo.

Anyone with information about this person is asked to contact Detective Lori Fonken at 503-823-1081,
