CRESCENT BAR, Wash. (AP) -- A second set of human bones exposed by lowering the reservoir behind Wanapum Dam were found in the Crescent Bar area.

Grant County sheriff's spokesman Kyle Foreman says the coroner believes the bones found last Friday are probably as old as the first bones found March 4. The wear pattern on the teeth indicates the person ate food different from modern humans.

The Wenatchee World reports the latest bones also are expected to be turned over to the state Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation.

The bones were found by people exploring the shoreline after the reservoir was lowered because of a crack in the Wanapum Dam.
