NEW YORK (AP) _ Authorities are trying to determine if a pile of bones found in a Bronx home are those of a woman who apparently went missing four years ago.

Little is known about what happened to 83-year-old Florence Bock. When a cleaning crew came to the home where she once lived last week, they discovered the remains _ a pile of bones, including a skull, lying next to a cane.

The house was purchased recently by a developer, police said.

The city medical examiner's office was working to make an identification. The cause of death was listed as undetermined, said spokeswoman Ellen Borakove. She said anthropologists would review the bones.
