SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego County authorities are investigating after hikers came upon human bones in a remote, mountainous area of eastern San Diego County.

Sheriff’s officials say deputies received a report Sunday of the remains being found at Horsethief Canyon near Alpine.

Lt. Kenn Nelson tells KFMB-TV (https://bit.ly/1kkuHia ) it appears the bones had been there for several years.

The medical examiner is planning an autopsy to try to determine the identity and cause of death.
