(WTVM) – New scientific testing may help investigators finally give a child to a previously unidentified child whose remains were found in Lebanon County, PA.

On Oct. 10, 1973, the body of a young woman was found on the Edward Martin Military Reserve in Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania.

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children has created a 3D facial reconstruction using a CT scan of the skull.

Recently NCMEC facilitated chemical isotope analysis on the Jane Doe’s remains through the USF Forensic Anthropology Center.

It is believed that the girl was probably born and raised in the southeast U.S. including the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, or Virginia

Anyone who has information about this Jane Doe is asked to call 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-842-5678).
