LUDINGTON, MI (AP) -

Authorities say the body of a man has been found on a Lake Michigan beach.  

The Ludington Daily News reports three bicyclists found the body on Tuesday night along the beach in Mason County about 3 miles north of Big Point Sable Lighthouse, which is located north of Ludington.

The body was about 65 feet from the water's edge.  

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday to determine cause of death. The man's identity wasn't immediately known by authorities.  

Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole says the man's body may have been on the beach for months. They're checking reports of missing people for possible clues.
