Skeleton sightings are on the rise at Lake Mead, but not all are a concern for rangers

Until recently, scuba diving equipment has become an unexpected issue. In the depths of the water, numerous previously concealed objects have been exposed, and the water levels at Lake Mead have dropped by over 20 feet since mid-February.

  • Earlier this year, someone reported finding another set of skeletal remains inside a barrel near Hemenway Harbor and Days Bay in Calville.

    Since that time, individuals have been searching for additional eerie findings. And certain individuals believe they have stumbled upon one.

    Currently, a few of those objects are emerging into view, as the water level in the lake decreases significantly. Dive clubs and divers from the area have been adorning the depths of Lake Mead with objects that were appreciated by divers and utilized for dive instruction over numerous years.

    In fact, some park rangers are actually concerned about what someone might find when looking at remote areas called “outback.”

    Likely originating from either a donkey or a wild sheep, these bones were genuine. The rangers claimed that investigating what seemed to be spinal bones was a worthwhile use of their time, so they were summoned to an area close to Callville Bay last weekend.

    The park rangers said it is better to encourage people to take a closer look at items before calling them in, but also to report any findings.

    It is important to remember that removing anything from National Park Service land is illegal, as stated by the NPS. Visitors can leave these items at the entrance stations or nearby ranger stations before leaving the park. If personal effects are found on the water or beach, visitors should leave them there. According to NPS, “Now News 8 told,” if items are found within a larger area, such as a sunken vessel, they should be left alone. Dispatch Mead Lake can be contacted at (293-8998-702) to appropriately manage the scene and handle any items found.

    If someone finds something that they could potentially remove from National Park Service property, the law states that they could face penalties, including a fine of up to $5,000. Taking items from NPS lands is considered a misdemeanor, classified as a Class B offense. The Federal Code of Regulations for NPS includes formal policies, which state that taking items from NPS lands is prohibited. Additionally, it is also considered a violation of the Archaeological Resource Protection Act to dig or collect items that are not exposed on the surface.
