Global TV reported this morning that some people out geocaching near Nanaimo cam across some human remains, possibly ancient native site. Is there any more scuttlebutt on that?

After doing a little research on the band name mentioned in the article, I think I have found the cache and cachers. Check GC2CFAJ SpongeBob's New Lagoon. It's on Duke point. I sure hope it was old remains.

Very odd discovery, unfortunate that the cachers had brought their kids along. Glad to see it was indeed a burial ground and not something more sinister.

Does anyone know if the remains are still there? Has the cache been taken from this location? The reason I ask is because we just started geocaching a few days ago, and on our second time out we found a skeleton but I couldn't find a skull and was unable to determine if the bones were human or not. This was in Cedar on Sept 29, 2011

Cache is has been moved nearby, I know that, but I have no clue about the remains.

The bones you found were probably animal, I've found many deer bones while caching. Just a guess though.
