April 15, 2013|By Kate Mather

Sheriff's Department investigators plan to further search an area in Palmdale where a human skull was found Sunday, officials said.

Few details were immediately available about the discovery, which the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said was made shortly before 4 p.m. near the 6200 block of West Avenue N.

KTLA reported that an area resident's dog found the skull.

Homicide detectives and coroner's officers planned to return to the location about 8:30 a.m. Monday to conduct "an extensive search/investigation," a Sheriff's Department statement said.

Authorities asked anyone with information on the matter to call detectives at (323) 890-5500.
