Police release sketch of boy found dead on Galveston beach

Police release sketch of boy found dead on Galveston beach

"In an effort to identify this child, the Galveston Police Department contacted one of the most experienced and best forensic artists in the nation, Lois Gibson, and she was able to render a sketch of this child for us".

Authorities in Texas are asking the public to share a sketch of a young child whose 30-pound body was found Friday in a case that police are calling "extremely unusual".

Official Medical Examiner reports are not yet available, but police are treating the death as a homicide until they "can unequivocally prove otherwise".

The boy, though to be aged between two and five, is described as approximately 3' tall with a slender build, black hair and brown eyes.

The boy was found naked and already in a state of decay when he was discovered on Stewart Beach, (pictured) Galveston around 5.30pm on Friday.

Local police searched the missing-child databases of surrounding counties and federal agencies, including the Coast Guard and US Customs, but found nothing.

"Someone, somewhere knows this child and can help us identify him". He said it isn't unusual for authorities to find drowning victims naked as the tidal pull on Galveston beaches is strong enough to pull clothes off.

However, more than 48 hours since the boy's body was found, no one has come forward to claim him. Cops say no missing person's reports match, so checking with CPS & feds.

The Galveston Police Department asks that anyone with information regarding the identity of the child call them at 409-765-3776.

Investigators said they don't want to rule any situation out, so they have also reached out to Child Protective Services to see if there's any way the agency can help identify the child.
