    Man Whose Body Was Found Ashore in Ocean City Identified
    JULY 18: Load up the car, crank up the summer jam and head for the shore. Whether you want to hit the boardwalk or try parasailing, there are many fun beaches within an easy drive of D.C. Treat your inner-beach bunny to a weekend of waves and sand.

    Ocean City police have identified the man whose body was found floating offshore at the resort. 

    The department said in a news release Thursday that the body found was that of 25-year-old Michael West of Temple Hills. 

    Police say West's body was found Tuesday afternoon near 127th Street after a beachgoer reported it to lifeguards. 

    Officers say West was reported missing to Prince George's County Police and was last seen early Sunday around 127th Street. 

    Investigators say autopsy results are pending, but foul play wasn't suspected.
