The Charleston Police Department's Harbor Patrol and deputies from the Charleston County Sheriff's Office were searching a marsh area on The Citadel’s campus on Wednesday morning when they came across the remains.

"They began the search at 10:30 a.m. this morning and the remains were found about 11:30 a.m.," said Charles Francis, a spokesman for the Charleston Police Department. "The Charleston County Coroner was called to the scene and removed the skeletal remains."

Police were searching in the area after a severed human foot was found at the Charleston City Marina on May 1. The right foot was encased in a black sock inside of an Adidas Samoa Shoe, but it's still unknown who the victim is or how he or she died.

Authorities have not said what led them to the campus of The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina. Anyone with information is asked to call the Charleston Police Department at 843-743-7200 or Crime Stoppers of the Lowcountry at 843-554-1111.
