Human remains found in Red Rock Canyon

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Police say hikers stumbled upon some human remains in Red Rock Canyon.

Lt. Les Lane says the remains were spotted in the National Conservation Area just west of Las Vegas on Thursday afternoon.

Lane says rangers with the Bureau of Land Management identified the bones, which appeared to be part of a spine, as human.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal says the Metropolitan Police Department’s Search and Rescue Detail is investigating.
