    Palm Springs police announced the discovery today.

    Officials havenít determined whether the person was male or female, but the bones appear to have been there for at least three years.

    Has anyone submitted Bob Harrod's name for consideration, or do we think that LE already has him on the list to check against?

    There's also Jonne Ann Boe and Guadalupe Mario Mora of Cathedral City, Christina Ann Battin and William Wilson of Thousand Palms, and Christopher Grindey of Palm Desert.

    These three cities are very close to Palm Springs.

    Bob's case is in NamUS so he might be on the list depending on what the Riverside County ME finds out about these remains, ie. gender, race, age range. I try to keep an eye on anything within a relatively short distance of Orange County and San Bernardino since he has family in both counties. Palm Springs is relatively close.

    So we'll wait and see.... but if it needs to be submitted we'll definately do so. I don't think there is enough info on the remains to submit this soon.

    MEDIA RELATIONS DIVISION
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Date: December 19, 2011
    Contact: Sergeant Mike Kovaleff, Press Information Officer
    Phone: (760) 323-8106 Email: Mike.Kovaleff@palmspringsca.gov

    On Saturday, December 17th, 2011, at approximately 1:38PM, the Palm Springs Police Department received a call of possible skeletal remains found by a hiker, on a hill in the western of South Palm Springs. Officers responded to the location and contacted the hiker. The hiker led officers to a hillside area between Avenida Moraga and Camino Monte, approximately 1300 feet west of the 2100 block of South Palm Canyon Drive. Officers observed the skeletal remains and determined that they were human bones. Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner personnel also responded to the location to assist in the investigation. The investigation at the location was suspended due to darkness and weather conditions.

    On Sunday, December 18th, 2011, at approximately 8:15 AM, PSPD and Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner personnel resumed the investigation at the location. Several human bones were recovered and they are all believed to be related to one human body. The name, age, and sex of the decedent have yet to be determined pending investigation. A cause and date of death have not been determined and it is unknown if this is related to any type of crime. It is estimated that the bones have been at the location for at least three years.

    Palm Springs Police Department Detective Personnel are investigating all past reports of outstanding missing persons in the area in an effort to identify the decedent. Anybody with information on missing persons who were known to hike in the area or were last seen in the area during the past 15 years are urged to contact Detective Simon Min at 760-323-8142.
