WAUSAUKEE, Wisc. — A search by more than 100 volunteers for a woman last seen in 2017 has turned up bones that appear to be human in Marinette County, according to sheriff's officials.
The search for 83-year-old Jeanette Fullerton Sunday near Wausaukee also uncovered some clothing and footwear that matches what Fullerton was wearing when she disappeared, authorities said.
The findings were about two miles (3.2 kilometers) from her home in a wooded swampy area where recent trail camera photos were discovered of Fullerton from the morning she went missing.
Recently, a man who lives north of Highway 180 retrieved the memory card from trail camera he hadn't checked in years, WLUK-TV reported.
Authorities initially said they believed Fullerton may have tried to walk to her daughter's house about a quarter-mile away. Searches and a Silver Alert at the time failed to locate her.
