Indiana State Police will release new evidence in the case of Abigail Williams and Libby German, today.

Sgt. Kim Riley says the sketch that will be released Monday was created by an artist from information collected by all the agencies, including the FBI, involved in the double-murder investigation.

Abby Williams, 13, and Libby German, 14, were reported missing on February 13 after being dropped off along the Monon High Bridge Trail near Delphi to go hiking, but did not return when a family member went to pick them up. The photo released Monday by authorities is the first depiciting the suspect's face.

The bodies of the two girls were found along the edge of Deer Creek, about three-quarters of a mile from an abandoned railroad bridge where they were dropped off to go hiking.

The man is described as white, between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches and weighing 180 to 220 pounds. The eye color is unknown. The hat the man is wearing in the sketch may not be accurate. They also released audio of a male saying "down the hill".

In the over five months since their deaths, no arrests have been made. Anyone with information about the murders or person in the composite sketch is asked to call the anonymous tip line at 844-459-5786.

A reward over $230,000 is available for information leading to an arrest.

In late February, police had released two grainy images of a man they consider the main suspect.

That evidence came from German's cellphone.
