MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (AP) — Police say an investigation reveals that a man who was found dead at the base of a popular Mackinac Island tourist destination intentionally jumped from the top and left a note indicating plans to take his own life.

Mackinac Island Police Chief Doug Topolski says Thursday that a passerby found the man's body about 9:15 a.m. Wednesday at the base of Arch Rock.

Arch Rock is a unique natural limestone arch that rises 146 feet above the Lake Huron shore in northern Michigan. Climbing on it is strictly prohibited and viewing platforms are available at the site.

The name of the man, an Upper Peninsula resident in his 40s, wasn't immediately released.
