GARDINER, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say human bones found along the bank of the Umpqua River near the Oregon Coast Saturday were those of a woman.

The Register-Guard reports (https://goo.gl/dsCVkY ) the woman was between 30 and 45 years at the time of her death.

The Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office says the woman died from one to three years ago.

The examiner’s office will continue to work on identifying the woman using DNA and dental records.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is investigating possible leads from missing women whose description and disappearance match criteria from the bones.

A man who had been fishing found the bones on shore.
