WHITING — A man’s body was discovered late Monday after he was found washed ashore on the east end of Whiting Beach.

The Whiting Police Department received a call at 8:30 p.m. Monday from a man who was walking his dog, Whiting Police Public Information Officer Cpt. John Sotello said. The man was walking at the far east end of the beach on BP Whiting Refinery property when he found the body.

The unidentified man appeared to have been on the beach a few weeks, Sotello said.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to call the Whiting Police at (219) 473-4400.
