An investigation is underway after a human skull was discovered along a popular Lake Tahoe biking trail. 

According to Carson City sheriff's deputies (via Fox 40), bicyclists found the skull on Sunday morning along the Flume Trail north of Marlette Lake in Lake Tahoe State Park. The skull was out in the open and appeared to have been there for a while. 

On Monday, the Carson City Search and Rescue Unit returned to the location and uncovered what they believe are more human remains. The Washoe County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue K9 unit assisted with the investigation in another location on Tuesday, where additional areas of interest were identified by the human remains detection dog. 

Story developing.
