JACUMBA — Hikers on Saturday found human remains in the mountains in this part of western Imperial County not far from the San Diego County line.
The remains were found near Mountain Springs Road off of Interstate 8.
County Coroner Investigator Deputy Rick Williams said he was notified of the discovery by the U.S. Border Patrol.
Williams said he was planning to go in a helicopter to locate and work on recovering the remains.
However, he said the weather in the mountains would likely delay that flight.
