Authorities say possible human skeletal remains found over the weekend in a northeastern Indiana lake could be old.

Indiana Conservation Officers say a resident reported seeing the bones in Steuben County's Hamilton Lake and that divers found more remains during an extensive underwater search on Sunday.

Officer Jim Price says forensic experts are working to confirm the age of the bones found in the lake about 30 miles north of Fort Wayne. Price says investigators believe the remains could be "archaeological in nature."
