(7/11/13) Bones that were found Saturday along the Eau Claire River are confirmed to be human. A kayaker found the bones near Big Falls County Park in the Eau Claire County town of Seymour.

An anthropologist from Madison examined the evidence, and determined that they were a pelvic bone and a vertebrae bone. Sheriff's officials said the bones may be those of a 21-year-old man who drowned in 2001. Va Lee disappeared after going underwater at Big Falls, and his body was never found. Officers notified Va's family about that possibility. More tests are being performed in an effort to confirm the person's identity.
