FORT TOTTEN, N.D. (AP) — The FBI says authorities have identified human remains discovered on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation in east-central North Dakota.

A preliminary autopsy report confirms the remains are those of 39-year-old Joseph Bruce. Bruce originally was from Belcourt and was most recently living in the Grand Forks area.

His remains were found over the weekend on the southern shores of Devils Lake.

The search continued on the reservation Wednesday for additional remains, with help from a U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter.
