    San Diego police have released a sketch of Baby Doe --14 years after the child’s skeletal remains were found dumped near a hiking trail.

    “Baby Doe is between 2 and 4 years old and is believed to be mostly Caucasian race with light to medium brown hair,” Cold Case Detective Lori Adams told KFMB-TV Thursday.

    Hikers found the remains in Rancho Bernardo in 2004.

    “They were able to come up with an image of what they believe Baby Doe looked like using a CT scan image of the skull,” Adams said.

    At the time of the discovery, police said the cause of death couldn’t be determined. Detectives are investigating the case as an unsolved homicide.

    Dobrev, do you often follow the older cases of missing/unidentified? it seems so hard after such a long time has passed to know how we can help. It hurts a heart for a baby to be abandoned like thus, no family to give a respectful burial. :(

    Yes I do. I feel such sadness that they sort of get forgotten as the years go by and I have hope that they can be solved. I guess I just like to see some of the older cases get attention like the new ones do :(

    National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Aims to Identify Remains of Tot Found in San Diego in 2004

    Nearly a decade ago, the remains of a little boy were found in a wooded area near a hiking trail in San Diego. Today, a national agency is still seeking answers, mainly, who was that child?

    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children released digitally-produced sketches Tuesday of a young boy whose skeletal remains were found in a wooded area near a hiking trail southeast of Rancho Bernardo Community Park on May 4, 2004.

    On that day, two hikers noticed a green padded winter coat lying over a white and green duffel bag. When they removed the coat, the pair found a human skull and bones in the bag, according to the center.

    The boy was believed to be between two-and-a-half and three-and-a-half years old when he died. NCMEC said he appeared to have been dead for at least a year when he was found.

    Two sweatshirts, a blue vest, red warm-up pants, and grey-tan socks were also found in the duffel bag.

    According to a forensics practice known as Isotope Analysis, the boy’s mother may have spent time in the southeastern part of the U.S. while pregnant. Shortly after he was born, she may have lived in Texas before moving to Southern California.

    "Nearly a decade ago" am I reading that right?

    Hmmm. Yep. Didn't catch that. Somebody doesn't know what a decade is. Or they're like me and still think the 90s were also a decade ago.
