Last Thursday, October 8, a partial skull was found on Lost Coast Forestlands (LCF) property in a creek by one of the biologists working there. According to Tim Metz, contracted land manager for LCF, which he describes as “a conservation forestry company working to restore, protect and manage local timberlands,” the biologist thought it was an abalone shell but, once he picked it up, he knew he needed to call law enforcement.”It’s in the same area where the search for Margit occurred so that’s the working theory,” Metz said. Margit Pritchard is an older woman who went missing in the Piercy area in May of 2018. Neighbors are hoping that the skull may be her remains.
Metz said that the skull was found upstream from the bridge about a 1/4 of a mile. Photographer Talia Rose captured an image of the creek for our readers above.
Almost exactly 8 years ago, a whole skeleton was located buried within a couple miles of where this skull was located. At this point there is no known connection between the two human remains.
