    The San Diego Police Department is asking for the public's help in finding out what happened to a baby whose body was discovered along a Rancho Bernardo hiking trail in 2004.

    The department released a composite sketch of "Baby Doe" on Thursday along with pictures of the clothes he was wearing, and said forensic testing indicates Baby Doe was between 2 and 4 years old at the time of their death.

    Baby Doe was discovered by hikers on May 4, 2004. The baby's features are consistent with being mostly Caucasian and he is believed to have had light to medium-brown hair, SDPD said.

    Investigators say, according to testing, it is likely that Baby Doe's mother was born on the mainland United States and likely resided in the southeastern region of the country.

    Baby Doe may have spent the first year of his life in that region before migrating west toward California, SDPD said.

    Anyone with information can call the SDPD Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293, or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers online or by calling (888) 580-8477.

    Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
