A group of children found the body of a man in the northeast Hazel Dell area Tuesday afternoon.

The body of an adult man was found just before 4 p.m. in a drainage area of the 10700 block of Northeast 10th Avenue, Clark County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Fred Neiman said.

The man’s name was not released.

The cause of death is being determined by the medical examiner, Neiman said, but there doesn’t appear to be any sign of foul play.
