    Human remains were found in the outskirts of Gilroy on Wednesday, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office.

    By Thursday morning, the gender  was still unknown, Sgt. James Jensen said, but he added that the dental work found on the teeth had gold caps, meaning that the person couldn't have been 15-year-old Sierra LaMar, who was murdered in 2012 and whose body had never been found.

    The remains were found in the area of Santa Teresa Boulevard and Castro Valley Road by a PG&E worker. The area is just south of Gilroy, next to the Gavilan College Golf Course and near Highway 101.

    Jensen said deputies responded to the scene just before 4 p.m.
