Authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body washed up on an upstate New York lakeshore.

The Seneca County sheriff's office says the body was found around 11 a.m. Saturday on the western shore of Cayuga Lake in Ovid.

Deputies say they made the discovery about 11 hours after the victim's family filed a missing person report.

They didn't disclose his name.

An autopsy is being performed and the investigation is continuing.
