PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Authorities say the deaths of two men found on Rhode Island beaches over the weekend do not appear suspicious.

The body of a 64-year-old South Kingstown man was found by a couple walking a dog Sunday morning near a building at Scarborough Beach in Narragansett. The Providence Journal reports the state Department of Environmental Management has identified him as Alan Mason.

A 53-year-old Providence man also was found by a kayaker Saturday at the Quonochontaug Breachway in Charlestown. The Westerly Sun reports Charlestown police identified him Joseph Huston.

Autopsies on both men are scheduled.

There is no known connection between the deaths.
