Sketch shows face of girl found dead in suitcase along Texas interstate

Sketch shows face of girl found dead in suitcase along Texas interstateā€

The Madison County Sheriff's Office released a composite sketch Thursday based on the first facial reconstruction of a girl whose remains were found a year ago in a black suitcase near Interstate 45.

Madisonville is about 100 miles north of Houston, Texas.

Amber Thompson, now 17-years-old, was last seen at her home in Caldwell, Idaho on September 14, 2016.

The center said pollen found on her skeletal remains showed she was likely from Arizona, though she could also be from a nearby region in Mexico.

Using a CT scan of her skull, forensic artists at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children created the facial reconstruction.

The agency said a feeding tube was among the remains.

"She was described as a biracial girl, standing 5'7" tall and weighing about 110 pounds. NCMEC says the it's most likely she was from southeast Arizona. Authorities say she likely had a condition called micrognathia, which would have affected her ability to eat on her own. According to a media release from NCMEC, she would have also likely needed professional medical care throughout her life.
