does anyone remember the incident in October 1993, during the search for Thomas Carlton? Teams were combing the area from the Adk Loj all the way down to Newcomb. On an island in the lake they discovered a large-ish bone. Based on its size, it was thought that the bone could have been the femur of a young boy. a thorough search was done of the immediate area. not sure if anything else was found, but as i recall from subsequent newspaper stories -- all of this is strictly from memory, so can't vouch for precision -- tests were done on the bone and it was inconclusive. From a deer perhaps(?) Another dead end.
There was another interesting discovery made during that search, on one of the High Peaks--unrelated to the bone--but that's for another discussion.
