A teen girl found skeletal remains while swimming in an Oregon river this summer, authorities said.

Now police are trying to identify the human remains.

The remains were found on Aug. 27 in the Deschutes River in Bend and confirmed to be human by the medical examiner’s office, Bend police said in a Sept. 27 news release.

A police dive team then found more remains in the water the next day, authorities said.

The adult human remains appeared to have been underwater for more than a year and are likely from the same person, police said.

The Oregon State Medical Examiner is working to identify the remains through DNA testing.

Anyone with information about a missing person can call Bend police’s non-emergency line at 541-693-6911.
