COCOA, Fla. - A body found floating Friday afternoon in a retention pond in Cocoa has been identified as a man who was reported missing on Wednesday, according to the Cocoa Police Department.

Jamel Dunn, 31, of Cocoa, drowned in the water near Plaza Parkway. No foul play is suspected.

Police said Dunn's fiancee reported him missing on Wednesday. It's unclear how long he was in the water but detectives at the scene on Friday said it appeared that the body had been in the water for several days.

The state medical examiner's office said Dunn died by drowning, according to News 6 partner Florida Today. Detectives want to see toxicology results to determine if there were any other contributing factors to Dunn's death. Those results could take several weeks.

Police said an investigation is ongoing.
