LAKE MEAD, Nev. -- Two sets of human remains were found in the Lake Mead Recreational area and Lake Mohave, that's according to Christie Vanover of the National Park Service.

They both were found Saturday in different areas and at different times. 

Vanover said the skeletal remains found at Lake Mohave were found by kayakers around 12:15 p.m., and at 3:45 p.m., a boater found the remains at Lake Mead in an area called Stewarts Point Cove. The National Park Service says this area is only accessible by way of boat.

Vanover said they have Park Rangers investigating both scenes. The Clark County Medical Examiner was also called out to the scenes.

Vanover said, three people have been missing for awhile from the Lake Mead Recreational area. Two went missing from Lake Mead back in February. 

There was also a hiker who went missing near Lake Mohave.
