The discovery of a leg bone in the dry reservoir bed created by the removal of the Elwha dam has prompted police to look into a missing person case from 1991, The Peninsula Daily News reports today.
The missing person, Karen C. Tucker, 41, was reported missing in the Lake Aldwell area on Jan. 5, 1991.
A leg bone, the tibia, was found in the drained reservoir by a Clallam County couple out walking their dog on the dry bed May 15, according to the Clallam County Sheriff’s Department. (The tibia is the larger of the two bones of the lower leg.)

Other than the fact that the bone was found in the area where Tucker was reported missing, it isn’t known what link, if any, there might be between the discovery of the bone and the Tucker case.
