BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Skeletal remains found near a hiking trail in a Los Angeles suburb have been confirmed as human.

Police say a hiker reported discovering apparent human remains on April 22 in the Verdugo Mountains above a Burbank neighborhood.

Police say a county coroner’s investigator determined the remains were human, but that potential identification of the person could take several months to a year.
