Using the CLEO II detector, we have obtained evidence for a new meson decaying to D0K+. Its mass is 2573.2-1.6+1.7±0.8±0.5 MeV/c2 and its width is 16-4+5±3 MeV/c2. Although we do not establish its spin and parity, the new meson is consistent with predictions for an L=1, S=1, JP=2+ charmed strange state.
