State police say they will release a composite sketch of a man considered the main suspect in the killings of two northern in girls.

Indiana State Police released this composite sketch based on information gathered during the investigation of the murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams.

Abby Williams, 13, and Libby German, 14, were found dead in a wooded area the day after they were reported missing on February 13. Photo and sketch courtesy Indiana State Police.

The bodies of the two girls were found along the edge of Deer Creek, about three-quarters of a mile from an abandoned railroad bridge where they were dropped off to go hiking.

The man in the sketch is described as between 5 feet 6 inches tall and 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing between 180 and 220 pounds. The hat the man is wearing in the sketch may not be accurate. No arrests have been made in the slayings and authorities have not disclosed the cause and manner of the girls' deaths.

Authorities had previously urged people to study two grainy photographs of a man they considered to be the main suspect in the killings and an audio recording of a male voice saying "down the hill".
