SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (myFOXDetroit.com) -

The St. Clair County sheriff's department says the Port Huron man was in Mill Creek in Clyde Township on Thursday when he reached under a log in the water and found the skull. The find was in a state game area about 55 miles northeast of Detroit.

The sheriff's department says the man placed the skull on land and he and his companions immediately went back to their vehicle to call authorities.

A dive team searched the scene and found some other bones in water that was 3-4 feet deep. The bones were turned over to the office of a medical examiner for examination.

The find is under investigation.
