Police ask for help to solve missing persons case after facial reconstruction workshop

Digby Missing Persons Case

The RCMP is asking for the public's help to solve a missing persons case involving a skull found in Digby County last September.

The skull was one of fifteen from Canada that were reconstructed at the New York Academy of Arts Forensic Sculpture workshop last week.

Students used clay to create facial reconstructions which were photographed and placed on the website Canada's Missing.

Attorney General and Minister of Justice Mark Furey says, "We're hoping that this reconstruction may help identify who this person was."

Anyone who may have information about who this person is asked to contact the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner Service, Digby RCMP, or Crime Stoppers.

Emails can also be sent to the National Centre for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains.

Since 2015, four visual identifications have been directly attributed to facial reconstructions performed during the workshop.
