Human Bones Found In Glendora Park By Hiker

A hiker found human remains at a popular trail in Glendora, Calif. Monday.

Glendora police said they are male bones and appear to have been there for a while, the San Gabriel Valley reports. Officials said the bones -- found in South Hills Park -- don't appear to be linked to any active missing persons report.

While the remains have not yet been identified, a police officer told Patch that transients and the homeless often take refuge in the park.

Robert Serrato, who frequently hikes on trails in Glendora, told CBS he was shocked by the morbid discovery. “I think anybody in this neighborhood would be,” he said.

The Los Angeles County coroner is currently conducting an investigation.
