Facial reconstruction composite of child whose remains were found released
MADISONVILLE, Texas (KVII) —
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has released the facial reconstruction of a child whose remains were found a year ago.
According to NCMEC, the child's remains were found inside a black suitcase on Sept. 17, 2016 near the 7800- block of I-45 north in Madisonville, Texas.
NCMEC said the girl was between two and six years old. She was Caucasian or Hispanic with dark hair. When her remains were found, she had been wearing a pink dress and a diaper.
The girl was also found with a feeding tube, NCMEC said, and likely had a condition called micrognathia. This condition could have affected her ability to eat on her own and she would have likely needed professional medical care throughout her life.
NCMEC said while the girl's remains were found in Texas, a pollen analysis completed on her remains suggests she was from the southwest U.S. of the adjacent region in Mexico. It's even more likely, NCMEC said, she was from southeast Arizona.
NCMEC asks anyone with information on this case or the identity of the girl to call their 24/7 hotline: 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).
