    Human Remains Located Near, Glencoe Ca
On October 23, 2022, at about 1030hrs, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office received a report regarding the possible discovery of human remains.
A caller reported that he had been hunting in the area of Ponderosa Way east of the North Fork of the Mokelumne River when he discovered human remains.  The suspected human remains were reported to be located within a steep drainage that was not easily accessible in rugged terrain.  
Detectives and a Forensic Anthropologist hiked to the location and confirmed that the remains were human.  No cause of death or injury was immediately apparent at the scene.
The Calaveras County Search and Rescue Team was dispatched to the area and successfully extricated the remains from their location to a roadway, where they were transferred to the Calaveras County Coroner.
An autopsy was conducted on October 24, 2022.  Positive identification and cause of death are still pending.
