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

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says the man’s boat broke down in Gardiner, Oregon, and once at shore, the man was gathering firewood when he found the bones.

The sheriff’s office confirmed the skeletonized remains were human.

The remains are unidentified and will be taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Portland to be examined and processed for possible identification.
