PALM SPRINGS (CBS) — A body was found Thursday near a Palm Springs resort, according to authorities.

The discovery of the unidentified remains near the Riviera Palm Springs Resort & Spa, 1600 N. Indian Canyon Drive, was reported to police shortly after 2 p.m., Officer Steve Grissom said.

Police said they believe the body was that of a male transient and they do not suspect foul play.
