Modesto police are reporting a body has been found in a canal along Briggsmore Avenue west of McHenry.
The body appeared to be that of an adult male. He apparently had been in the water, which measures about two feet deep, for several hours.
Police at the scene said they had not determined whether foul play was involved.
According to Heather Graves, spokeswoman for Modesto police, a bicyclist going over the bridge along the Virginia Corridor discovered the body and called it in at 6:43 a.m.
