More bones found near Rose Lake


More bones have been found near the Coeur d’Alene River south of Rose Lake, the area where campers found skeletal remains on Saturday, the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.

Sheriff’s investigators and volunteers from Kootenai County Search and Rescue have spent the past few days scouring the area, the release said.

The bones will be sent to a forensic anthropologist in Seattle for dating and possible identification.

Campers discovered human remains on Saturday at an area off Highway 3, just south of the community of Rose Lake. An official said the body appeared to have been there for some time.

Officials are hoping to be able to compare the remains found Saturday with dental records contained in missing persons reports, the release said.
