KALISPELL, Mont. -

Flathead County authorities say an 18-year-old Kalispell man died after he apparently fell 80 feet from a cliff north of Lakeside.

The Flathead Beacon reports (http://bit.ly/1b66HGr ) a friend found the man's body Tuesday morning at the cliff's base.

Authorities recovered the body that afternoon.

Flathead County Sheriff's Office officials say the man attended a party at the top of the cliffs on Monday night.

His name has not released.

The sheriff's office is investigating.
