The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office is investigating possible human remains found Thursday in the area of Richmond Avenue and Santa Teresa Boulevard in unincorporated San Jose. 

Sheriff's investigators Friday morning said they have no information that connects the findings to Sierra LaMar, the teen who disappeared from the same area in March 2012. Antolin Garcia-Torres was convicted of murdering the 15-year-old girl and is serving life in prison.

Sheriff’s detectives and crime scene investigators at the scene said Thursday it’s too early to determine if the bones belong to a male or female.

Deputies responded to a creek bed in the area after a caller reported finding bones near what appeared to be a tent or homeless encampment, officials said.

No other information was immediately available.

No additional information was immediately available.
