As part of an ongoing search, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is asking for the public’s help to identify a deceased boy found in Decatur, Georgia on Feb. 26, 1999. He has been left without a name for nearly 16 years.
His body was found in a wooded area behind a small church cemetery on Clifton Springs Road in South DeKalb County, Georgia. The boy had been deceased for several months before he was found. He is estimated to be 5-7 years of age. He stood approximately 4’ tall and weighed about 50 pounds. He was found wearing a long-sleeve hooded pullover shirt made of two different materials. The body of the sweater was blue and white plaid and the arms and hood were dark blue thermal material. He was also wearing blue jeans and size 11, Timberland brown suede boots. Forensic analysis has suggested that the child is from the local region which encompasses DeKalb County, the Atlanta area, South Georgia and Northern Florida.
