Oregon State Police do not yet know the identity of the little girl found dead last month in the woods at a rest area.

But they have ruled out who she isn't.

The girl's remains were found in December at the Van Duzer Rest Area in Lincoln County.

"To date, we have received over 150 tips from citizens in the United States and Canada," state police said. "We are deeply appreciative of the public?s input so far, and continue to accept information which may lead to the identification of the child."

The Oregon State Medical Examiner?s Office estimates the girl was 6 1/2 to 10 years old and about 3-foot-10 to 4-foot-6. A DNA analysis is still pending.

State police said medical examiners, law enforcement partners and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children have been able to rule out who the girl was not.

"This may include, but is not limited to, dental records, age, descriptors, and confirmed sightings via verifiable sources, and/or recent contacts with family or friends that demonstrate they were alive after the remains of the unidentified female were discovered in Lincoln County," state police said.

Police released the names Monday "in an effort to refocus the public?s attention and reduce duplicative tips."

Authorities have ruled out the following missing chiildren:

Dulce Alavez, age 6, from Bridgeton, NJ
Addyson Gibson, age 12, from Portland, OR
Noelle Johnson, age 7, from Portland, OR
Niayah Bylenga (AKA Niayah Crawford), age 7, from Pendleton, OR or Ritzville, WA
Tarie Price, age 8, from Gretna, NE
Breasia Terrell, age 10, from Davenport, IA

"OSP reminds the public that while these children have been excluded from our investigation, they are all still reported missing and we ask the public to continue to be vigilant for these children and all other missing persons reported across the nation," police said.

The child?s body was discovered Dec. 10 at the H.B. Van Duzer Forest State Scenic Corridor. Due to the condition of the remains, police believe the girl had likely been dead for at least 30 days before being found.

Foul play is suspected in her death.

Her race or ethnic origin has yet to be determined, as investigators await the completion of DNA analysis.
OSP, in partnership with the Oregon State Medical Examiner?s Office, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), and numerous state and local agencies across the U.S., are using a variety of means to include or exclude known missing persons who match the general description and-or sketch previously released. This may include, but is not limited to, dental records, age, descriptors, and confirmed sightings via verifiable sources, and-or recent contacts with family or friends that demonstrate they were alive after the remains of the unidentified female were discovered in Lincoln County.

?We are deeply appreciative of the public?s input so far, and continue to accept information which may lead to the identification of the child,? according to OSP.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call 800-442-0776 or *OSP (*677).
