PULASKI COUNTY, Mo.-- A forensic artist has released two drawings that show what a child may have looked like, prior to that child's remains being discovered in Dixon, Missouri.

The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office began investigating the remains in October of 2013, when a photographer found the remains in the woods.

Investigators have been unable to determine if the remains were those of a boy, or girl.  However, they do believe the child was between the ages of 8-13, and of Mestizo ancestry, which is a mixture of Native American, Hispanic, Latino and Mexican. 

The drawings were done by a forensic artist with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

That agency was just one of the many helping the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office.  Others include the Mid-States Organized Crime Information Center, the Center for Human Identification and numerous federal, state and local law
enforcement agencies. 

If you have any information about this case, please contact the Pulaski County Missouri Sheriff’s Office at 1-573-774-6196, or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678 (1-800-THE-LOST).
