TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) - Officials are investigating after a child found skeletal remains by the water’s edge at a Temecula-area lake.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/1gLTCcQ ) that the remains were found Monday at Vail Lake, about midway between Temecula and Aguanga.

Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Manning says the remains are being analyzed now, but that they appear to be very old and possibly Native American.

California law specifies a process for helping to preserve Native American remains. The Native American Heritage Commission collects information of such discoveries. The commission has notified the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians.

Tribal Chairman Mark Macarro says the discovery included a skill and more than one long bone.
