The Acadia Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating a body that was found in a waterway Friday morning.  

Sheriff K.P. Gibson says two boaters discovered the body of an unidentified male in Bayou Blanc between I-10 and the Pontoon Bridge near Estherwood and called 911. Authorities have not confirmed foul play at this time.

The body has been in the water for a long period of time so the coroner will have to identify, stated the sheriff. 

The body is being sent to the coroner's office in Lake Charles for an autopsy.
