Authorities were attempting to identify a man whose body was found Saturday at an Oceanside park in San Diego County.

A pedestrian found the decomposing body along the San Luis Rey River, just south of Capistrano Park, and reported it to police at 12:20 p.m., said Tom Bussey, a spokesman for the Oceanside Police Department.

The body appeared to be of an adult white man, Bussey said.
