Further Forensic Analysis Provides More Traits Of Found Child

Oregon State Police

More clues have emerged surrounding a child’s remains discovered December 10th in Lincoln County. 


Oregon State Police say the girl’s body was found in a duffle bag in the woods near the H.B. Van Duzer Forest State Scenic Corridor rest area. 

Further forensic investigation shows she was between 7 and 9 years old, had dark brown or black hair, hazel or brown eyes, and was mostly white with Central American ancestry.  The girl was also wearing a pull-up diaper when found. 

Investigators hope this new information will lead to identifying the girl, and add that there’s a strong chance she was not reported missing. Over the past six months, they’ve ruled out 60 potential missing kids. 

The girl would likely have not been seen since November 2020.  Tips are welcome at 1-800-442-0776.
