A body has been found in a cave in Wayne County.

The Wayne County Coroner’s Office was called to Trails End Road Tuesday morning.

An investigation was conducted by the Monticello Police Department. The Wayne County Rescue Squad was on the scene to assist in recovery efforts, due to the difficulty of the terrain and rough access into the cave itself.

At this time, the body has been identified as that of a male. Monticello Police say they don't have any other information about the person's identity.

An autopsy and forensic anthropology examination is scheduled in Frankfort on Wednesday to assist with identifying the person and to determine a possible cause of death.
