California authorities have launched a murder investigation after the body of a missing University of Pennsylvania student was found dead in a park near his parents' home, the Orange County Sheriff's Department said Wednesday.

According to the Orange County Register, the friend said Bernstein had told him they were going to meet up with another friend from high school, and they arrived at the park shortly before midnight on January 2. They also did not indicate why the case is being investigated as a homicide.

Detectives interviewed a friend of Bernstein, who was one of the last persons to see him alive. Bernstein didn't respond to messages, so Woodward said he left and went to a girlfriend's house, then returned to the park later.

On Jan. 4, two days after Bernstein disappeared, detectives spoke with Woodward again at Borrego Park and noticed that his hands had several small scratches and abrasions, according to the affidavit obtained by the Register. Officials also saw that the friend had several cuts and scratches, but he claimed they stemmed from a "fight club" he was involved in.

Both men have routinely denied any major misunderstandings between them, but their public representations of US foreign policy have not always aligned.

"On their way out of Sheriff's Headquarters, (investigators) noticed every door (the friend) had to touch on the way out of the building he pulled his jacket over his hand to prevent his hand and fingers from touching any part of the doors he touched", the affidavit stated, according to the report.

About 25 sheriff's deputies searched for Bernstein in the adjacent Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the department had said. Although officials would not say whether he was buried or not, they confirmed that Tuesday's storm helped find his body.

Investigators did not release a possible cause of death or the condition of Bernstein's body, which was found in the brush surrounding the park.

The University of Pennsylvania student was last seen entering Borrego Park at about 11 p.m. on January 2 by Woodward, who was with him at the time. He told relatives he was meeting up with his friends. He was reported missing the following day after his loved ones were unable to get in with him.

Investigators say they are following multiple leads, but do not yet have a suspect in custody.
