Bodyboarders discovered the body of an 82-year-old man near a rock jetty by 40th Street in Newport Beach on Sunday, authorities said.

Foul play is not suspected, police said.

The body was fully clothed and bore no obvious signs of trauma, according to the release. It appeared to have been in the water for a short time.
