The body was reportedly discovered by hikers at Abalone Cove Shoreline Park shortly before 10 p.m. Friday evening, said Lt. Dave Dolson, Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau, notes NBC LA.

The man's body is currently unidentified. An autopsy will be performed. Anyone with information is asked to contact Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500.
