The Sheriff's Department has confirmed that a body found Wednesday was that of Renata Klein, right. Detectives are still searching for Dusan Klein, left.

 

The body of a Canyon Country woman was found by public works employees on a rocky, isolated area in the Angeles National Forest earlier this week, sheriff’s officials said Saturday.

The body was reported found the same day investigators enlisted the public’s assistance in trying to find the woman and her husband, who is still being sought.

The body of Renata Klein, 59, was found at mile marker 8.95 on Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to a Sheriff’s Department press release issued late Saturday.

Detectives asked for the public’s help Wednesday in finding Klein and her husband, Dusan Klein, also 59. The couple were last known to be at their Canyon Country home on Saturday evening and left there in their 1999 gold Jeep Cherokee with their dog, a black-and-white cocker spaniel, investigators have said over the course of the week.

Dusan Klein, the dog and the vehicle are still missing, investigators said in the release late Friday.

Four homicide detectives are working on the case.

“I know they found her body near the Angeles Crest Highway,” Sgt. Michael Konecny of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Santa Clarita Station confirmed Saturday.

The body was found north of the Angeles Crest Highway on Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road and more than eight miles south of Highway 14.

Neighbors said the couple were at their Wildwood Canyon home Saturday night and later seen driving away in their Jeep Cherokee. The Cherokee’s license plate number is 4FLN519, and a sticker is attached to the window that reads: American Travel.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Robert Martindale of the Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
