The state anthropologist examined the bones and confirmed that they appeared human, the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office said in a statement.

The search continued for more bones as they also try to determine where the bones came from.

Investigators say that no foul play is suspected and the current homeowners are not implicated in any way as to how the bones ended up in their yard.

The bones were believed to be old but an attempt to date them had not taken place.
