    Investigators said the remains appear to be those of a white woman with brown hair, between the ages of 30 to 55. 

    "We're still very early in the investigation. So God willing, we'll still be able to pull this together and identify the person and hopefully bring closure to their family," said Detective Peter Hernandez, with the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

    There were very distinct pieces of jewelry including four rings, gold in color with an emerald cut, and earrings commonly worn on the higher portion of the ear, near where the remains were found, investigators said.

    One of the rings has the word "Mom" written on it.

    "The 'Mom' ring is very distinctive. The ring itself should trigger somebody's memory of who this could be, or have they ever seen that before," Hernandez said.
