Sacramento Police are investigating the possibility that a human leg found in Sutter County may be tied to a missing person's case locally.

Officials with the Sutter County Sheriff's Department say a human leg was found along the Garden Highway near Lee Road in an area known as "Beer Can Beach." After receiving a citizen's report of human remains found, detectives were able to confirm the discovery of a human leg.

An autopsy conducted on the leg confirmed the limb was severed from a Caucasian male on the left side of his body.

Investigators with the Sacramento Police Department are currently camped out along Fell Road. It's unclear how this location is tied to the human leg report or the missing person's case.
