BILLINGS, Mont. -

 The Yellowstone County sheriff's office is seeking the public's help to identify a man whose body was found in an irrigation ditch near the Phillips 66 Refinery in Billings.
    
The coroner's office says the man was white or possibly Native American in his mid-20s to late 40s. He was about 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighed 165 pounds.
    
Assistant Coroner Chad Fehr tells The Billings Gazette that all of the man's toes on his right foot and the big toe on his left foot had been surgically removed. An autopsy determined the man drowned in mid-October.
    
Officials say the man was dressed in dark clothing with a black leather belt and was wearing black work boots.
