CRESTLINE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have discovered a body in a cave in the Southern California mountains after a woman reported seeing a hand sticking out of the ground.

KABC-TV reports that the woman spotted the hand Thursday night near an old glass bottle dump in Crestline, a community in the San Gabriel Mountains east of Los Angeles.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies were called and found a small cave dug into a hillside. The hand was inside the cave.

Investigators believe a man was buried there when the cave collapsed. A special team will remove the body so it can be identified.

Authorities say homeless people have been known to frequent the area.
