SANDUSKY, OH -- A skeleton found earlier this week near Cedar Point amusement park may be the remains of local missing boater Charles Kaplan, reports the Plain Dealer.
Kaplan, of Solon, has been missing since his boat was found capsized near the amusement park last October.
Kaplan's companion, Pam Holstein, was found dead inside the boat. The Coast Guard combed the area for Kaplan, but he was never found and the search for him was suspended.
The Plain Dealer reported that on Monday two boys walking along a breakwall found human remains. They told their father, who contacted authorities.
The remains are being examined by the Lucas County Coroner's Office in hopes of getting an official indentification.
