The body of an 89 year old man was found in Lake Conroe Saturday morning.

MONTGOMERY, Texas- Authorities are investigating the death of an elderly man whose body was found floating in Lake Conroe on Saturday morning. 

The man has been identified as 89-year-old Gerald Belk.

According to the Montgomery County Precinct One Constable's office, they received a call around 9 a.m. about a man's body being found in the water behind his residence located in the Bay Pointe Landing community on Old Aqua Landing East.

Upon arrival, authorities found the man's body floating by his dock. 

Investigators said it appears he had been dead for three to four days, and authorities do not suspect foul play at this time.

They said the man may have been working near the dock and fell in, because tools were found at the scene. 

The investigation is ongoing. An autopsy will be performed to determine exactly how the man died. 

Neighbors in the gated community said Belk was a good man who was well liked.
