Investigators have released images to help with the investigation of a little girl found dead in a dumpster earlier this month.

A composite sketch of the little has been created with the hope that someone recognizes her as well as an image of a vehicle that stopped at the crime scene.

Following a post-mortem completed on May 4, evidence revealed the human remains were that of a female between the ages of four and seven.

Based on the criteria provided by the Ontario Chief Coroner’s Office and Ontario Forensic Pathology Services, a rapid analysis was conducted by the Ontario Centre for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains to identify potential matches of missing children.

At a news conference at police headquarters on June 7, Inspector Hank Idsinga, of the Homicide & Missing Persons Unit, said the analysis identified 58 missing children cases from across Canada for investigative consideration.

He also said his office contacted the lead investigator of every single case to collect further information.

“Several children identified on this list were reported to be in other countries involved in a parental abduction or custody dispute,” he said. “The police services assigned to these cases have been in constant contact with the Canada Border Services Agency and Interpol. They do not believe that they have re-entered the country.”

Idsinga said there is no evidence that links any of the 58 to his case.

“In fact, eight of the 58 have now been accounted for since May 2,” he said. “Unfortunately, we believe that it is unlikely that the child located on Dale Ave. has ever been reported missing.”

The little girl is Black, between 3’6” with black curly hair sectioned into ponytails. She has all her teeth.

Idsinga also said investigators have identified a vehicle that they would like to locate.

“The vehicle is captured on video stopping on Dale Ave. in the area of the dumpster on Thursday, April 28, 2022 at 10.26 p.m.,” he said. “It stops there for 21 seconds. We have been able to track the vehicle to and from the area.”

The vehicle is a dark coloured Porsche Cayenne SUV, model year between 2011 and 2014.

“We hope that someone might recognize the vehicle or witnessed it in the area that night,” added Idsinga.
