PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police are working to identify the man whose body was found at Beggars Tick Wildlife Refuge in southeast Portland.

A Portland Parks & Recreation employee found the body Tuesday morning off Southeast 111th Avenue.

Crews recovered the body and it was turned over to the Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office.

Police said Friday that there were no signs of trauma found during an autopsy, but the person has not been identified.

The body is described as a white man, 50 to 60 years old, 5 feet 5 inches tall with a medium build, light facial hair or stubble with some missing teeth. He was wearing Nike Velcro-strap shoes, hospital-type ankle socks with grip on the bottom and dark-colored denim pants.

He was carrying a key fob to a Ford vehicle and other keys stamped "Curly's," which investigators believe are from Curly's Locksmith in Vancouver.

The man was wearing some jewelry, including a ring with a Harley Davidson logo.

Photos of some of the items were released by detectives Friday. 

The body was believed to be in the water for at least two months.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Lori Fonken at 503-823-1081 or email missing@portlandoregon.gov.
