It's been four years since Dulce Maria Alavez was kidnapped in broad daylight while playing in Bridgeton City Park in New Jersey.
To coincide with the fourth anniversary of Dulce's disappearance, the National Center for Missing an Exploited Children released a new age-progression rendering of how she might look now as a 9-year-old.
In a joint statement, the Cumberland County Prosecutor's office and Bridgeton Police Department shared a sketch of the person of interest in the case and said:
"In the absence of evidence pointing towards Dulce's demise, investigators hold out hope that Dulce is still alive."
