      The Mason County Sheriff's office is sending bones found Friday to a forensic anthropologist at Michigan State University for a detailed examination and testing.

      The Mason County Sheriff's office is sending bones found Friday to a forensic anthropologist at Michigan State University for a detailed examination and testing.

      The anthropologist has already viewed photographs of the 12 bones found and identified one of them as human.

      The bone is what appears to be a fragment of a human skull and looks larger than what would be expected of a child's skull.

      It was found in the area of Morton and Chauvez roads about five miles south of Ludington.
