West Jefferson, Ohio (AP) -- A teenager has found human bones along a central Ohio creek, and a coroner believes they're most likely native American remains at least 160 years old.
An arrowhead and a piece of claw-tooth jewelry were discovered nearby.
West Jefferson High School junior Jacob Ramey stumbled upon bones from a nearly complete male skeleton during a Sunday hike with friends along the banks of the Little Darby Creek.
The 16-year-old sent a cell phone photo to his mother, who advised him to call police.
Madison County sheriff Jim Sabin says his top concern is that the remains are properly reburied.
