GOVERNMENT CAMP, OR (KPTV) -

A sketch and physical reconstruction were released in hopes of identifying a woman whose remains were found near Government Camp in 1986.

The skeletonized remains of a woman were found near an old logging road by U.S. Forest Service contract workers on Aug. 2, 1986.

Virtually no physical characteristics could be determined because few remains were recovered. Investigators don't know how tall she was, what color hair she had, how she may have died or why she was in the area.

Examinations determined she was between 18 and 30 years old, probably white and she had been dead for more than a year when her remains were found.

With the information they do have, investigators released images of what the woman may have looked like.

The remains did yield full DNA profiles, which is being searched in the national database for possible associations with missing persons around the country.

Anyone with information that may assist in this investigation is asked to call the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office tip line at 503-723-4949.

More information on the case is available at NamUs.gov, unidentified person case 7602.
