Calabasas, Los Angeles County, California

Officials determined unidentified remains found amid an old plane wreck in hilly terrain outside Calabasas were animal remains, not human as early reports suggested. 

Lt. Jennifer Seetoo, of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s station in Malibu/Lost Hills, said the coroner identified the remains as belonging to an animal. The remains and the wreckage were discovered by hikers Sunday afternoon. 

The wreckage was found in a ravine near a hiking trail about a mile and a half north of Highway 101 and the Liberty Canyon Road exit, officials said. The site is in unincorporated terrain generally north and west of the Calabasas landfill.

Seetoo said the plane wreckage was “very old” and that the National Transportation Safety Board was investigating. 

“It was not a recent crash,” she said. 

Federal Aviation Administration records show the plane was destroyed in 1991, a sheriff’s sergeant said Monday.

A representative from the National Transportation Safety Board said that the agency hadn’t launched a formal investigation but was in the process of gathering information.
