LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say a body has been found on a remote trail near Laurel Canyon Park in Los Angeles.

City fire spokesman Brian Humphrey says officials received a call Monday morning from a hiker about a possibly injured person.

Air and ground crews were deployed to the scene, and discovered a person dead off Mulholland Drive.

Humphrey tells the Los Angeles Times the person was found about a five-minute hike from the road.

The person is believed to be a hiker, but officials had no additional details on the age or gender, or the cause of death.

Los Angeles police detectives were called to the scene.
