DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK, Calif. -- More bones that were found in Death Valley could be the remains of four German tourists who vanished 13 years ago, sheriff's officials say.

A weekend search turned up the bones in the same remote area where two hikers found skeletal remains last month, Inyo County sheriff's spokeswoman Carma Roper said Tuesday.

The coroner's office hasn't determined a name, but a form of identification for one of the tourists was found nearby.

Dresden resident Cornelia Meyer; her 4-year-old son; her boyfriend, Egbert Rimkus; and his 10-year-old son vanished in 120-degree heat during a trip to the Mojave Desert park in 1996.

Months later, their rented minivan was found in a sandy ravine. The van's tires were shredded.
