Bones discovered in Bagnols-sur-Cèze not Lucas

France 3/Scoop, Apr 8

At the end of March, three children discovered bones at the bottom of a well in Bagnols-sur-Cèze, Gard. This is where Lucas Tronche disappeared three years ago. But the bones have turned out to be of animal origin, not human.

Forensic scientists conducted an analysis to determine the origin of the bones. This Sunday, April 8, relatives of the family of the teenager announced on Twitter that the discovery made in the well has no connection with Lucas’ disappearance.

Lucas was 15 years old when he vanished. Three years after his disappearance the search for him is still active.
