PICO RIVERA (CBS) — A body found buried in a Pico Rivera backyard was reportedly found by people searching for someone who had been missing for days, a sheriff’s department official said Thursday.

“When they got to the residence where they knew the missing person frequents, they found human remains buried in the backyard and called the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department,” Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker said in a statement.

The unidentified man was believed to have been about 19 or 20-years-old.

Earlier reports that say the body had been dismembered are false, according to a county coroner’s office.

No cause of death was indicated and no arrests have been reported.
