GILROY, Calif. (AP) - Northern California authorities have found human remains that could belong to a 15-year-old girl who disappeared on her way to school nearly four years ago.

Santa Clara Sheriff’s Sgt. James Jensen said Thursday the department has no information on the age or gender of the remains found Wednesday near Gilroy.

Sierra LaMar disappeared on her way to a school bus stop in March 2012. Two years later, a criminal grand jury indicted her alleged killer for kidnapping and murder, even though a body was never found.

The death penalty case against the alleged killer is scheduled to proceed in April.

A formal search for LaMar’s body was suspended in March 2015. By then, hundreds of volunteers had spent 50,000 hours searching a 15-mile radius around the bus stop.
