UPDATE: The remains are now in possession of the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office.
Officials say the condition of the remains has prevented authorities from determining an identity, according to a release from the Sheriff's Department.
A desk lieutenant at the coroner's office told Patch that the investigation is still ongoing, and that results could be available early this week.
Original: Human remains were found Saturday morning in the Angeles National Forest near Big Tujunga Canyon Road, not far from where a "shallow grave" was discovered earlier this month, according to authorities.
Sheriff's detectives and members of the Montrose Search and Rescue team found the remains at mile marker 2.72 while searching the area around the previously discovered grave, which was located at mile marker 2.92.
Detectives were awaiting officials from the county coroner's office to arrive, according to a release from the Sheriff's Department. No other information regarding the remains was available.
