CAN A NEW FACIAL RECONSTRUCTION IMAGE CREATED FROM A CHILD’S SKULL HELP IDENTIFY HIM?

His body was found 20 years ago on Feb. 26, 1999 in a small church cemetery in DeKalb County, Georgia. Today, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is releasing a new reconstruction image of what the little boy may have looked like in life.

Can you help solve this decades old mystery?

 The little boy has remained unidentified for 20 years and here at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, we are working hard to give him his name back.

 Investigators determined that the young boy was of African American decent, between the ages of 4 and 8 years old, and likely died about 3-6 months prior to discovery. He was estimated to be between 3’10” and 4’2” and approximately 45-60 pounds. He was found wearing an XL blue plaid and navy hooded sweatshirt, red denim jeans, size 3 and size 11 Timberland boots. The results of advanced forensic analysis of his bones and teeth suggest that the child was likely born and raised in the southeast United States, most likely Georgia or Florida.
