The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office is hoping to identify the remains of a person who was found near Johnson Pass Road Friday.
The Sheriff’s Office received a report of a possible car crash about 2 p.m., said Detective Matt Harwood. When authorities arrived they found a wrecked car below U.S. Highway 50 near Old Meyers Grade. Human remains were found nearby, Harwood said.
Harwood said he hopes to confirm the identity of the body Thursday. Dental work will be used to identify the remains Harwood said.
The California Highway Patrol told the Sacramento Bee that it has received no reports of a collision at the site, and it is unknown when the vehicle went off the embankment.
The car was registered to an Elk Grove man in his mid-40s who has been missing since May, according to the paper.
