Los Angeles homicide detectives are searching a Hollywood wilderness park for clues after a severed human head was found in a bag there.

Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith says a dozen robbery-homicide detectives and a coroner's cadaver dog began searching the brush in the Bronson Canyon area Wednesday morning.

Two dog walkers called authorities Tuesday afternoon after one of their animals pulled the plastic grocery bag out of the brush off a trail and began playing with it.

Smith says the bag contained the recently severed head of a man in his 40s to 60s. He hasn't been identified but police are checking reports of missing persons and coroner's investigators will check dental records.

Smith says there was no sign of violence at the scene and it's possible the man was killed elsewhere.

Bronson is a popular section of Griffith park near the Hollywood
