A hiker has discovered human bones in Alberta's Kananaskis Country.

RCMP say a hiker stumbled on the remains, including a skull, in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park Monday. 

The bones have been sent to the medical examiner's office and have been confirmed as human. 

The RCMP officers are now working with the examiner's office to try and identify the person.  

Sgt. Patricia Neely said having a skull allows them to work with the missing persons registry to try and identify the person using dental records.

Police were searching for any other bones in a wooded area Tuesday with help from the Foothills search and rescue team.

Two different sets of human remains in separate locations were discovered inside Banff National Park earlier this summer.
