BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) - Police are scouring a small eastern Iowa lake looking for additional human remains, weeks after a decomposed human foot was found near a spillway.

The Hawk Eye reports (https://bit.ly/29WwTJi ) that Burlington police searched Lake West by kayak this week looking for additional body parts.

Police Major Dennis Kramer says investigators have been using various techniques to search the lake in northwest Burlington, including pumping water from the five-acre lake.

The foot was found on June 8 by people clearing brush around the lake. Authorities say it was discovered where a missing 53-year-old Burlington man’s bicycle was found last summer. Police say Steven Leasure has not been seen since May 2, 2015.
