Body found floating in Biscayne Bay

A man's body — with no apparent signs of trauma — was found floating in Biscayne Bay near the MacArthur Causeway in Miami Beach on Thursday afternoon, according to police.

A call came into 911 shortly after 4:30 p.m. reporting that there was what appeared to be a body floating in the water, said Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez.

When the city's police officers, marine patrol and fire department arrived, they located the deceased man.

The Coast Guard helped Miami Beach take the body to the Coast Guard base for further investigation.
