First facial reconstruction released of girl found dead in suitcase

- The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children released a facial reconstruction of an unidentified girl whose remains were found last year off I-45 in Madisonville, Texas.

The child's remains were found on September 17, 2016, near the 7800 block of I-45 in Madisonville in a black suitcase. Authorities believe her to be 2-6 years old, Caucasian or Hispanic,with dark hair. The child was found in a pink dress and a diaper. She was also found with a feeding tube. Authorities believe she may have had a condition called micrognathia affecting her ability to eat on her own and would likely have needed professional medical care throughout her life.

Pollen analysis suggest she was from the southwest U.S. or the adjacent region in Mexico, and even more likely from southeast Arizona, officials say. 

Anyone with information on the girl's identity are asked to call the NCMEC at 1-800-THE-LOST.
