      Human leg bone found in Silver Lake State Park

      A human femur bone was found by a camper while walking along the Lake Michigan Shoreline in Silver Lake State Park.

      A human femur bone was found by a camper while walking along the Lake Michigan Shoreline in Silver Lake State Park.

      According to the Oceana County Sheriff's Department, a Hillsdale man was staying at the Grace Youth Camp on Saturday when he went for a walk along the shoreline.

      The man came upon what he believed to be a human femur bone. He turned the bone over to a deputy, who had the bone confirmed as human and as a femur by a Michigan State Anthropologist.

      The bone will now be sent to the Michigan State Police Forensic Lab for testing and DNA analysis.
