LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- Clark County authorities have confirmed that partial human remains have been found in the northwest part of the Las Vegas Valley.
"A hiker below Harris Springs in the 11000 block of Kyle Canyon Road reported finding the partial remains," Metro Officer Laura Meltzer told News 3. "Nothing else was found in an initial search of the area. Because of the poor conditions, I believe there are plans to go back up and search again."
Meltzer said detectives from missing persons and homicide have been notified.
The call came in about 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
The Clark County coroner's office said it is trying to determine the identity of the remains but could not provide other details.
