(WTVM) -

North Carolina authorities and the Center for Missing and Exploited Children are hoping to solve a two-decade-old cold case and are releasing new details.

Chemical isotope and pollen testing have revealed that the boy is from somewhere in the southeastern United States, most likely Alabama or Georgia.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children have created a new facial reconstruction of the boy in the hopes that someone will see the image and recognize him.

In September of 1998, skeletal remains of the unidentified boy were found in North Carolina’s Orange County in heavy brush by a billboard on I-85.

Investigators determined that the Caucasian or Hispanic boy between the ages of nine and twelve was 4’11” tall with straight brown hair and had been deceased for several months.

If you have any information or recognize the boy, you are asked to contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) or the Orange County, N.C. Sheriff’s Office at 919-644-3050.
