JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) - The staff at Cape Lookout National Seashore thinks the Graveyard of the Atlantic may be giving up some of the remains it’s been holding onto.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reports (http://bit.ly/1y5B7Fe) the staff has come across large pieces of timber out on South Core Banks that appear to be from a shipwreck. Park ranger Steve Neshkoff said the staff initially discovered the apparent wreckage on Dec. 28, including timber pieces about 40 feet by 60 feet.

Upon return to the area on Dec. 31, two more large pieces were found. One of the pieces was 37 feet long. They were all in an area about a mile from the Cape Lookout Lighthouse.

Neshkoff said he plans to take more detailed photos and continue to talk with state researchers.
