OPP hope new 3D images will help identify child whose remains were found in Ontario river 2 years ago

The Ontario government is offering a reward of $50,000 to anyone who can help identify the child whose remains were found two years ago along the Grand River in Dunnville, Ont.

As we approach two years from the day a child’s remains were discovered in the Grand River in Dunnville, Ont., the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has released a three-dimensional approximation of her face and the Ontario government is offering a reward $50,000 to anyone who can help identify her.

The unidentified remains of the child were found along the southern banks of the river in a marshy area locally known as Grand Island on May 17, 2022 around 1:30 p.m., by two people fishing on a boat.

OPP Detective Const. Darryl Graham shared that he had hoped that the complainants had been mistaken. “Being a parent myself, the last thing that I wanted to know that happened was that a child had died.”

Since then, police say they have combed through missing persons cases, made pleas to the public and utilized Investigative Genetic Genealogy (IGG) to try and identify the child.

Now, the OPP’s forensic artist and reconstruction analyst completed a facial approximation of the child and determined it was a girl. Police have further determined that she was between the ages of ten-and-a-half months and three years at the time of her death.
