How can anyone know he’s missing? – New York Daily News

A boy whose remains were found in a suitcase left in a wooded area in southern Indiana last month has not yet been identified.

Indiana State Police in Sellersburg continue to need help identifying the boy, who they estimate was between 5 and 8 years old at the time of his death, which would have been within a week before the tragic discovery, said state police Sgt. from Indiana. Carey Huls told CNN affiliate Wave3.

For some reason, no one notices that he’s gone. Well why would that be? It could be someone who is not from this country,” Huls told the outlet. “We’re not ruling any of that out. … So we have to ask ourselves, how can a child go missing and no one knows he’s missing? … It is very worrying”.

Last month, police said on Facebook that the boy was black, about 5 years old, with a slim build, about 4 feet tall, and had short hair.

The cause of death could not be determined from last month’s autopsy. As of April 19, toxicology results were still pending.

On April 16, a mushroom hunter found the remains in a hard-shell suitcase, which “has a distinctive Las Vegas design on the front and back,” in Washington County, in the 7000 block of East Holder Road.

Authorities have asked the public not to report any children whose disappearances are already documented as missing while those cases are investigated.

Anyone with information about a missing child who fits the description is asked to call 1-888-437-6432.
