LAKE HUGHES (FOX 11 / CNS) - Possible human remains were found Thursday in the Lake Hughes area.
The remains were found just before noon in the area of Templin Highway and Old Ridge Route, east of Interstate 5, according to Deputy Trina Schrader of the Sheriff's Information Bureau.
Sheriff's Homicide Bureau detectives learned that an environmental survey study crew discovered what appear to be partial adult human remains, Schrader said.
"The remains appear to have been in the area for a long period of time,'' Schrader said. "Due to treacherous terrain, the recovery ... was suspended for the day.''
Detectives and personnel from the county coroner's office will resume the recovery effort around 8 a.m. Friday.
The coroner's office will examine the remains to determine if they are human and if so will attempt to determine the cause of death, Schrader said.
