LA JOLLA - Lifeguards are searching the waters off La Jolla Tuesday after a diver reported seeing what appeared to be human bones.
The recreational spear fisherman told authorities Monday about 6:15 p.m. evening that he saw what looked like a pelvic bone, vertebrae and a femur underwater off Hospital Point, lifeguard Lt. Andy Lerum said.
He said the bones were about 150 yards offshore north of Marine Street beach, Lerum said.
About 11:30 a.m. lifeguard divers began the search. They hope to locate the remains and determine if they are human or animal.
"It very well could be animal bones," Lerum said.
Lerum said that large seals have similar-size bones and often times with these types of discoveries that is what they turn out to be, the lieutenant said.
