PLAQUEMINES PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

An autopsy was conducted Wednesday on the body of a man who was found in the Mississippi River in Port Sulphur, according to the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office.

Officials believe the body had been in the water for at least a week.

The Sheriff's Office released a picture of a chest tattoo in the hope that someone will recognize it and help identify the man.

The body is that of a white male believed to be between 40 and 60 years old, about 6'1" to 6'3" tall and 230 pounds. The man had light brown eyes, short brown hair with a balding crown and a mustache.

The left side of the man's chest had a skull tattoo and the initial "CN." The man was dressed in a dark-colored tank top and American Eagle jeans with a black belt.

There were no signs of trauma to the body and police do not suspect foul play. An official cause of death and the results of toxicology tests are pending.
