Frozen body found in Michigan identified as missing Sheboygan man

LUDINGTON, MI (WTAQ) - A frozen body found on a remote beach in western Michigan has been identified as a man from Sheboygan who's been missing since last fall.  

Three bicyclists found Allen Townsend's body on Tuesday night, along the Lake Michigan shoreline north of Ludington.

The 48-year-old Townsend was last seen in November of 2013. Authorities believe his body drifted from Wisconsin across the lake to Michigan.  

Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole said the body might have been on the beach for months, and foul play is not suspected.

An autopsy has been performed, but the cause of Townsend's death has not been determined.
