TORONTO — Nearly a month after a young girl’s body was found in Boston Harbor officials have posted large billboards in an attempt to find her identity.

Massachusetts State Police have posted 84 billboards in the state with the girl’s image along with the words “Did you know me? Please… Tell the police my name!” The billboards also show the dedicated tip lines set up for the girl.

A computer-generated composite image has been spread around social media, viewed and shared tens of millions of times, and yet no one has come forward to identify the little girl whose body was found along a Massachusetts shoreline June 25.

She had brown hair, brown eyes and had pierced ears. She was roughly three-and-a-half feet tall and weighed about 30 pounds. She had light skin and was likely Caucasian or Hispanic.

The girl was wearing polka-dot tights and was found with a zebra print blanket alongside the body.

Her body was found wrapped in a garbage bag.

“Investigators have acted on hundreds of leads and coordinated dozens of well-being checks on children locally, nationally, and internationally,” said a statement on the state police’s Facebook page. “To date, however, none have led to the child’s identification.”
