Clare County investigators are searching for the rest of a body near Harrison.
A resident of Timberlane Road, just east of Old County Farm Road south of Harrison called Central Dispatch last Friday morning around 10:47 a.m. to report that his dog had brought what he thought was a human bone back to his house.

Investigators from the Clare County Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene and took the bone to a forensic pathologist to have it identified.

The bone was identified as a femur bone belonging to a female “that appears to be older,” the release from the Sheriff’s Department said.

Further testing has begun to try and determine the age of the bone.

Meanwhile investigators are searching the area with the help of a cadaver dog from the Michigan State Police. So far, “nothing has been located in the immediate area,” Sheriff John Wilson said in the release.
“We will continue to investigate this incident and keep the public up to date,” he added. “We will be doing a complete search of the area.”
No further information was available at press time.
