PORT ANGELES — Searchers found no more bones on the bottom of the former Lake Aldwell, which was exposed earlier this year by the removal of the Elwha Dam.
The Clallam County sheriff’s office says it’s waiting for the result of a DNA test on the bone to determine whether it came from a woman who disappeared 21 years ago. The bone was found May 15 by a hiker.
The Peninsula Daily News reports the lakebed was searched by members of the sheriff’s office, Olympic National Park and the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe.
