An unidentified teenager whose remains were found almost 45 years ago in Pennsylvania may have been from South Carolina.

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children says testing done last month on the young woman's remains suggest she was born and raised in the southeastern U.S., including possibly South Carolina.

The body of a white female was found in a rural area of Lebanon County, Pennsylvania in October of 1973.  Though no manner of death could be determined, she likely died several weeks prior to the discovery.

With the help of a CT scan of her skull, a NCMEC forensic artist created an illustration of her image.  The girl is believed to have been 14 to 19 years old.  She stood 5'05" to 5'08" tall with light brown or blonde hair.  She received dental care during her lifetime, as she had fillings in her teeth.
