SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — The father of a missing family from the San Diego area says he was told by investigators that the remains of his son and his daughter-in-law were found buried in the desert near Victorville earlier this week.

KFMB-TV in San Diego says Patrick McStay confirmed Friday the family has been contacted by investigators from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. McStay says two of the four bodies discovered in shallow graves were the remains of Joseph and Summer McStay.

The couple and their two young sons have been missing for more than three years. Investigators had believed the family left for Mexico voluntarily after being convinced four people seen on a dimly lit surveillance video walking into Tijuana were the McStays.

McStay added he doesn't know if the other two bodies found in the desert are his grandchildren.
