Authorities investigating the murder of two IN teenagers on Monday issued a new sketch of the man they believe is the prime suspect.

The sketch is "an artist's composite of the information" collected by all the agencies involved in the double-murder investigation, including the FBI, said Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley.

Liberty German, 14, vanished with 13-year-old Abigail Williams on February 13 while hiking a trail near their hometown of Delphi, about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis. The photo released Monday by authorities is the first depiciting the suspect's face.

Search volunteers found the girls' bodies near the Delphi Historic Trail the next day.

The suspect has been described as 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-10, weighing between 180-220 pounds with reddish brown hair.

Other details about the deaths, including how the girls were killed or a possible motive, have not been released.
