The Island County Sheriff's Office is looking for help in identifying a body that was found washed ashore near Greenbank yesterday.

The sheriff's office said a man walking the beach near North Bluff Road found a body washed up on the shore near the high tide mark on Dec. 14.

The body was described as a white male approximately 5-foot-10 and 145 pounds, wearing Cherokee-brand, light-colored long underwear bottoms (size small) and white Nike Air-brand size 9 shoes.

The Island County Coroner estimates that the body, found on the east side of the island, may have been in the water for several months.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Sgt. Mike Beech of the Island County Sheriff's Office at 360-679-7322.
