Authorities are investigating after a man's body was found late Tuesday afternoon near White Rock Lake in Dallas. [[459171463, R]]
Dallas Fire-Rescue said it was called to a welfare check on the 4900 block of West Lawther Drive, along the White Rock Creek Trail north of Northwest Highway.
Police say the man was found floating in water in a densely wooded area. Due to the amount of time that the body had been in the water, police said they were unable to determine the man's race, age or what may have caused his death.
The medical examiner's office will try to make those determinations.
Crews cleared the scene at about 8 p.m.
