---- — RIVERTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a bone found last week in West Michigan appears to be part of an adult human skull.

The Mason County sheriff's department says the bone was among a group of 12 bones found Friday in Riverton Township, near Ludington.

The sheriff's department says the possible skull fragment had no tissue on it, and a photo was examined by a forensic anthropologist.

The bones are expected to be sent this week for examination by a forensic anthropologist.
