KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man whose body was found Monday afternoon in Hanalei.

The body was found floating in a stream located within the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge.

Foul play is not suspected at this time.

Police did not find any identification on the man or in the area where his body was found.

An autopsy was conducted today. However, due to the body's advanced stage of decomposition the forensic pathologist was unable to positively identify the man.

The man is believed to be in his 20s or 30s and has been deceased for more than three days.

The man was found wearing dark blue shorts and no shirt. He was wearing a silver ring with a cutout design on his left ring finger.

There were no sign of trauma on the body and the cause of death is unknown.

Police are continuing their investigation of this case.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call police dispatch at 241-1711 or detective Vicki Fonoimoana, 241-1694.
