Houston police are investigating after the body of a deceased man was found floating Thursday afternoon in Greens Bayou.

Police say witnesses saw the body of a man in Greens Bayou at 13040 Market Street about 4:30pm Thursday and called the Harris County Sheriff's Office, who responded and recovered the body. HPD investigators responded and determined the victim was wearing two pairs of blue jeans -- one black and one blue -- a red and green long sleeve plaid shirt, a brown-striped under shirt and black work boots.

The identity of the victim, in his late 40s, and his cause of death are pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
