FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities in Fernandina Beach are investigating the discovery of human skeletal remains.

An officer on patrol reported finding the remains around 5 a.m. Tuesday in the surf near a beach access point.

A Fernandina Beach police spokesman said the remains could be of one of three swimmers who have been missing in the water, two since Memorial Day weekend and one since Saturday, but it was impossible to make a positive identification without a DNA test.

The spokesman told WTLV-TV (https://fcnews.tv/1M474ln) that it would be “unusual” that the body would be skeletal so soon after going missing, but that marine life has been very active.

The medical examiner will conduct DNA testing.
