ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Searchers have found a second set of human remains in the Sandia Mountains but say it’s unclear if they’re those of a missing woman.

Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Lt. Pete Golden says the remains found about 5 p.m. Friday are at the base of a steep cliff in rugged terrain.

Bad weather is delaying access to the area and recovery efforts.

Another set of human remains were found late Thursday, but authorities say those could be from a person who went missing about a year ago.

Crews began searching Wednesday in the mountains overlooking Albuquerque for 24-year-old Brittany Johnson after her car was found in the Sandia Crest area.

Her family reported her missing Saturday.

A hiker found her vehicle’s keys on a trail and placed them on the parked car.
