WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Two separate discoveries of skeletal remains in central Wisconsin have been determined not to be human.

The first discovery happened Friday, June 29 when Oconto County Sheriff's deputies found skeletal remains in Archibald Lake. Authorities said DNR Conservation Wardens and the Green Bay Police dive team went to do a further investigation on Saturday. Oconto County Sheriff's Department representatives said they found a number of bones. According to Wausau police, Oconto County contacted Wausau about the discovery because of their "awareness of…Stephanie Low, who has been missing since October 10, 2010." 

According to a news release from the Oconto County Sheriff's Department, the bones found were not human remains.

The second discovery occurred Saturday, June 30 in Forest County. Wausau police say Low's family and friends along with officers found suspicious items at a property in the Township of Wabeno. Low's mother told Newsline 9 they were in the area around Old Highway 32. Some of the items were bones. However, Wausau police say the bones are not human, according to a preliminary investigation. The Wabeno police department assisted in this weekend's search.

Wausau police say they plan to further investigate the items found in Wabeno.
