A Santa Barbara Sheriff helicopter crew spotted the truck of Highway 154 around noon. A search and rescue team rapelled off the cliff to get the vehicle that belonged to a person reported missing in March 2012.
Crews then cut away brush and moved rocks so that the truck could be retrieved.
CHP investigators are looking into the cause of the accident. Investigators have not yet confirmed the identity of the remains.
