OPELIKA, Ala — The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children releases new images Thursday trying to help identify a little girl found dead in Opelika back in 2012.
The new photos created by a forensic artist used facial recognition software to try and recreate what the child may have looked like in life.
Captain Shane Healey confirms the Opelika police department has been working together with the NCMEC to gather information on the girl’s death.
A press release says the skeletal remains of this Jane Doe were found at a trailer park on Hurst Street on January 28, 2012. The release says anaylsis of the bones show the girl had been dead for between eight months and two years.
This would place her time of death between 2010 – 2012. Reports say she would have been between four and seven years old.
Bone analysis also shows the girl was likely abused and malnourished in life.
Anyone with information on Jane Doe’s death or who recognizes her from these images should call The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678. You can also call the FBI Mobile office at 251-438-3674 or the Opelika Police Department at 334-705-5200.
