A body was found Wednesday along the eastern coastline of Lake Michigan at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, police said.

The body washed up on the beach near the 600 block of Lake Front Drive in Beverly Shores, according to the Chicago Tribune. According to Dunes spokesman Bruce Rowe, the body was discovered at 7:15 a.m. by a man walking down the beach who called police.

Officials are speculating whether the body is the same person who fell from a boat last summer.

Rowe stated that the body found was a white male dressed in jeans, a black T-shirt, hiking boots and wearing a watch.

Law enforcement officials from the Indiana towns of Portage and Beverly Shores are further examining what happened.
