(AP) -- Authorities are investigating after they say human remains were found in a lake behind a Manassas hotel.

Prince William County police spokesman Officer Nathan Probus says the remains were discovered Tuesday after an employee at the Comfort Suites called authorities to report that something "suspicious" was in the lake.

An autopsy will be performed.

Police have not released any other information.
