MEARS, Mich. — Authorities say a bone from a human leg has been found along the Lake Michigan shoreline in western Michigan.
Radio station WGHN and The Muskegon Chronicle report Oceana County sheriff’s deputies responded Saturday to call from a person staying at a camp in the Mears area, about 65 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.
