Human remains found in roadside bushes between Morro Bay and Los Osos

A body was found in the bushes Sunday alongside South Bay Boulevard between Los Osos and Morro Bay, just north of Turri Road.

A man searching for his dog discovered the body, according to Sheriff's Department officials.

The identity of deceased has not yet been determined, but officials say he was a male transient who appears to have been dead since the summer.

The investigation is ongoing.
