The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police released a more accurate photograph of the boy who was killed and left in a wooded area near Mountain Springs, hoping to identify him.
The new illustration was made by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
LVMPD especially asks teachers to review the photograph very carefully to see if they can recognize the little one.
The body of the boy, believed to be Hispanic and between 8 and 12 years old, was found by hikers walking through the Mountain Springs Trailhead area, near mile marker 20 of SR 160, on Friday morning.
The boy is believed to have been left at the scene for the past 12 hours. He is 4’11 “and weighs 123 pounds.
Investigations stumbled on Saturday after a mother wrongly said it was her 8-year-old son. The little boy, his father and an 11-year-old half-brother were located after an Amber alert was activated.
Along with the robot portrait of the minor, who is estimated to have been 10 years old, details have been provided about his appearance.
“Both were seen in Utah and there we canceled the Amber alert. The father and his 11 and 8-year-old children were located. The 8-year-old boy was alive,” said Sergeant Ray Spencer, who clarified that the father had no sign of cell phone, which caused his wife’s concern.
If you have information about the case, you should call the information line 702-828-3521 or 702-828-2907.
