Maryland Natural Resources Police released a sketch of a juvenile whose partial skeletal remains were found in Frederick County back in May.

Police said the remains of an African American juvenile male were located in a wooded area near Cunningham Falls State Park.

Police believe he'd been dead for at least one to two years before being found by a person foraging for mushrooms.

A forensic anthropologist estimated that the male was 16 to 19 years old and was approximately 5 feet, 6 inches tall. His hair and eye color are unknown. 

The image released shows what he may have looked like at the time of his death.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Maryland Natural Resources Police at 410-260-8888 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.
