Sheriff's Office to search for remains of body near Ocotillo Wells

OCOTILLO WELLS — Imperial County Sheriff's Office coroner investigators will be searching for the remains of a body reportedly found by a Los Angeles area family southeast of Split Mountain Road and Fish Creek Wash.

Imperial County Coroner Sgt. Rick Williams said county officials received a report of remains found about 9:41 a.m. Wednesday.

Williams said investigators do not have a specific map coordinate so the strategy will be to meet with the reporting party and search for the body with those people rather than spending hours searching for the remains.

Williams said the Los Angeles-area family frequently visits the area where the remains were found.

He added the reporting party will meet with coroner investigators about 3 today to try to help in recovering the body.
