SLIDELL, La. - The St. Tammany parish sheriff's office says a man's body has been found near Slidell, and detectives are working with Mississippi authorities to find a person of interest.

Sheriff's spokesman George Bonnett says in a news release that the body was found about 4 a.m. Sunday in a wooded area near Ben Thomas Road.

He says the man is believed to be in his 20s, and the coroner's is expected to confirm identification.

Bonnett says that because the investigation is continuing, no further information will be released until Monday.

He did not immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press asking whether the man is believed to be from Louisiana or Mississippi.
