NATIONAL PARK — After a leg washed up along the shoreline of the Delaware River on Sunday, law enforcement says it will be several weeks until it can possibly be identified.

The Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office said a DNA sample needs to be taken from the leg and examined in a lab. The prosecutor's office is working with other law enforcement to identify the leg, which was described as being a lower leg and foot.

There were no markings on the limb, and the prosecutor's office said there were no clothes or shoes attached to help in the identification process.

The leg was found by a woman who was walking her dog.
