The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office announced today that they have identified a man whose body was found floating in the Arkansas River near Little Rock on December 30.

A release from the Sheriff's Office said the man had been identified by the State Medical Examiner's office as Jerome George, 41, of Little Rock. The cause of death was listed as drowning, and investigators said the body showed no signs of trauma. George's family had previously reported him missing to the Little Rock Police Department.

The body was seen floating in the Arkansas River around 9:30 a.m. on December 30 by a barge push boat operator. After pulling the body aboard, the operator docked at the Little Rock Port Authority, where the remains were recovered by the coroner's office and sent to the state crime lab for identification.
