The Travis County Sheriff's Office has identified the body found in Lake Austin on Monday as the man who attended the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

Friends reported Christopher White missing Saturday -- and Monday afternoon learned that search crews found his body near where he was last seen.

White was in town for ACL from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The sheriff's office says he was first reported missing near the home he and friends rented for the festival near Emma Long Park.

Kristen Dark with the sheriff's office says White was intoxicated early Saturday morning and went down to the dock on Lake Austin.

Around 1 p.m. Monday, the sheriff's office said they had received a call from someone saying they saw a body near the area where White was reported missing.

The cause of death is not yet known, but the sheriff's office says there is no evidence of foul play.
