RIVERTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - Bones found Friday in the Ludington area have been determined to be human, the Mason County sheriff told 24 Hour News 8 on Tuesday.
The sheriff said he is "99 percent" sure they are not the bones of 4-month-old Katherine Philips, who has been missing since June 2011.
Part of a skull and other bones were found Friday near Morton and Chauvez roads in Riverton, southeast of Ludington, the Mason County Press reports.
Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole told the Ludington Daily News that it was "a suspicious situation." The bones were sent to the medical examiner to determine if the bones were human or animal.
Chief Cole told 24 Hour News 8 investigators think the bones are too large to be from a baby. They also said the bones could be decades old or more.
More analysis is being done.
