VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities now say they've found the bones of four people in what appears to be a makeshift gravesite in Southern California's Mojave Desert.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department says the skeletal remains were found in two shallow graves near Victorville. Investigators first went to the remote area on Monday after a motorcyclist reported finding some bones that coroner's officials confirmed were human.

Homicide and coroner's officials have been digging in the area since then.

However, the bones appear to have been there a long time and authorities say it will take more examination to determine the age and gender of the victims - let alone how and when they died.
