Tuesday night in Ludington in Mason County some bicycle riders made an unexpected discovery. They were on the beach near the edge of Lake Michigan when they came across a body.

Police were called and now the investigation is on to try and determine how this person died. They have confirmed it's a male and they say the body could have been in that same spot for several months. Now investigators are searching through missing persons reports to see if that information will provide any leads.
