A human skeleton has been found by hikers near Red Rocks Park.
Three hikers found the skeleton three tenths of a mile above and to the west of Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Friday, Dec. 14.
The hikers notified a Jeffco sheriff's deputy who was patrolling the area and led the deputy back to the remains.
The skeleton was found in thick brush and appeared to have been there for some time. The person had been clad in blue sweatpants or shorts, and there were no noticeable signs of trauma, the Sheriff's Office reported.
