STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Swedish police said they have found a human foot inside a shoe, which washed up on a beach near one of the country's most popular tourist resorts.
Police said the discovery was made Tuesday in Tylosand near Halmstad on the southwest coast. Police spokesman Christer Harplinger said it included a shoe "containing a sock, with a foot inside it."
Forensic experts in southern Sweden are checking the foot against a national registry of missing people.

• The first foot was found on Aug. 20, 2007 on Jedediah Island by a father and his 12-year-old daughter visiting from the U.S. It is a Campus brand shoe, Size 12, that is available for sale primarily in India.
• The second foot was found on Aug. 26, 2007, on Gabriola Island by a resident walking along a trail. It is a Reebok, Size 12. The brand was first produced in 2004 and is no longer for sale.
• The third foot was found on Feb. 2, 2008 on Valdez Island by two forestry workers. It is a blue and white Nike, Size 11. The brand was produced between February and June 2003.
• The fourth foot was located on May 22, 2008, on Kirkland Island at the mouth of the Fraser River. It was a Size 7 New Balance and the only female foot. The brand was produced beginning in June 1999.
• The fifth foot, the only left foot, was found on June 16, 2008 on Westham Island at the mouth of the Fraser River. DNA testing has matched it with the third foot found on Valdez.

When I find shoes I like I often buy a few pairs and sometimes I don't wear them for a couple years, so if you found my foot in my shoe that was made five years ago It doesn't mean I've been wearing it for that long.
But authorities still don't know whom they belong to or how they have come to wash up on shores near Vancouver, British Columbia, in the past 12 months.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokeswoman Constable Annie Linteau said forensic examinations suggested the feet were not severed or "mechanically removed" from the bodies.
"The evidence shows that the feet were separated from their bodies by a natural process of decomposition," Linteau said in a press conference Thursday.
One of five human feet discovered on the shores of British Columbia has been matched with the DNA of a missing man, CTV News has learned.
The mysterious feet, which all appear to have naturally detached from their decomposing bodies, have puzzled investigators since the first foot washed ashore in August 2007.
Investigators have not named the missing man, but are expected to release more information next week. There are four other feet that still need to be identified, and two come from the same person.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- One of five feet that have mysteriously washed up on the shores of British Columbia over the past year has been linked to a depressed man who disappeared a year ago, police said Saturday.
