A man's body was found along the shoreline adjacent to Interstate Highway 80 in Berkeley yesterday afternoon, an East Bay Regional Parks District police lieutenant said. 

The CHP received a report from a cellphone caller of a possible body on the waterfront about a half-mile south of University Avenue and turned the case over to East Bay Regional Parks police around 3:30 p.m., Lt. Jon King said. 

The Alameda County coroner's office was also called to the scene. 

King said an investigation is underway and police do not have any further details about the victim or how he arrived on the shore.
