GENE AUTRY, Okla. (KXII) -- The Carter County Sheriff confirmed Thursday that a human skull was found Tuesday afternoon.

The skull was found on Jay Bird Lane, south of Happy Trails Lane. It's about 150 feet away from a nearby home. It was found by a man who regularly works in the area.

Carter County Sheriff deputies and investigators from the Oklahoma Medical Examiners office are on the scene conducting a search and an investigation.

Neighbors said examiners said they found part of a human leg bone.

"I've checked the whole entire yard for bones," Kimberly Stinson, who lives in the area, said. "My dogs dig up all sorts of bones, so I put them all in a bucket and handed them over."

The skull has been sent off for DNA evidence.
