OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) – The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has issued new digital composites of a young girl whose remains were found in Opelika in 2012.

The remains of Jane Opelika Doe were found on January 28, 2012, near a trailer park on Hurst Street in Lee County.

Further examination of her remains puts the female African American child between the ages of 4 and 7 years old, and said places her time of death between 2010 and 2012, based on the state of her remains.

An anthropological assessment of Jane Opelika Doe’s bones suggests that she was abused and malnourished prior to her death.

The composite includes the girl dressed in a pink shirt with heart-shaped buttons that were found near the remains. It is unclear if the shirt belonged to her.

The images above are a facial reconstruction completed by a NCMEC Forensic Artist and depict what the child may have looked like in life.
