REDDING, Calif. -

The Shasta County Sheriff's Office has released new information about human remains found in East Redding.

Searchers went back to the area Friday morning and found numerous human bones in a pasture, in the area of Arizona Street and Churn Creek Bottom.

This is an unincorporated part of Redding, east of Interstate 5 and north of Churn Creek Road/South Bonnyview.

The remains were originally found Thursday morning, December 8th, around 10:30 a.m. by a person in the area.

Friday morning, members of the Shasta County Search and Rescue Team, along with Major Crimes Detectives with the Sheriff's Department and members of the Chico State Forensic Anthropology Department returned to the site for further inspection.

Detectives say the bones all appear to belong to one person and that it does not appear to be foul play.

The remains will now undergo dental and DNA analysis to determine the identity of the person.
