Sarasota, Florida -- Sarasota County Sheriff's detectives are investigating the death of a man found floating in a canal on Siesta Key Sunday.

Authorities recovered the body of the man later identified as 41-year-old Robert Chittenden, who lived in The Landings nearby, around 7 p.m. near channel marker 72.

Investigators say he told someone he was going swimming. Deputies found some of his belongings in a pavilion near marker 74, at the end of a nature walk across from his home.

The medical examiner's office will perform an autopsy to determine his exact cause of death. The sheriff's office says no foul play is suspected.
