THURMONT, Md. (AP) — Maryland Natural Resources Police released a facial reconstruction sketch that they hope will unlock the mystery of skeletal remains found last spring in a western Maryland state park.

The sketch released Monday shows a young black man, 16 to 19 years old. He was about 5-foot-6 and probably died one to two years before his bones were found May 6 in Cunningham Falls State Park, police said in a statement.

The state medical examiner's office was unable to determine how he died, said Natural Resources Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson.

The sketch was produced by a forensic artist with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Police say the jawbone was not found, so the artist had to approximate the appearance of the young man's chin and lower jaw.
