The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office is asking the public's help in identifying the body of a man found in a wooded area off Highway 53 and Greensferry Road near the Rathdrum paintball field.

He was dressed in a gray, long sleeve three button thermal Henley shirt, a white t-shirt, size 34 x 32 blue jeans, a camo Mossy Oak brand belt, dark blue Sketcher tennis shoes and AND1 socks. A blue plaid button up Canyon Guide Outfitters shirt and a green or camo jacket.
