Police in Yamanashi Prefecture have found clothing and what looks like a human bone in an area near the campsite where an elementary schoolgirl disappeared more than two and a half years ago.

The clothing is a long-sleeved, high-necked and dark-colored garment similar to one that was being worn by Misaki Ogura, who would now be age 9, at the time of her disappearance, according to an announcement by the Yamanashi Prefectural Police Department on Wednesday.
