Smyrna Police release rendered images of missing child

SMYRNA – On Monday morning, authorities publicly released facial reconstruction images to assist investigation into a child’s remains located near the Little Lass softball fields on Sept. 13.

Smyrna Police said that the female child was believed to be Caucasian or Hispanic, likely between ages 2 and 5 and was dead for several weeks or possibly longer when located. The child had slightly wavy hair, spokesman Cpl. Brian Donner said.

“An anthropological exam of her remains suggests that she suffered from chronic illness(es),” he said.

The National Center for Exploited and Missing Children created the images.

Anyone with possible information was asked to call Detective Bill Davis at 653-3490 or contact Smyrna Police through Facebook or on Twitter @SmyrnaPD.

Tips can also be called into Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or NMEC at 1-800-THE-LOST.
