Indiana State Police released a composite sketch on Monday of the man they believe is responsible for the death of two teenage girls who went missing while walking on a hiking trail near their hometown in February, CBS News reported.

"It will give people a clearer image of who we are looking for," said Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley. The sketch is partially drawn from surveillance video footage, which shows a blue jacket walking through the woods, as well as an anonymous tip from the police tip line.

Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, vanished Feb. 13 while hiking near their hometown of Delphi. Their bodies were found in the woods the next day.

Minutes before the girls disappeared, German apparently managed to record audio of a man’s voice, in which he can be heard saying the words “down the hill.”

Police have not disclosed how the girls were killed.

The man in the composite sketch was described as white, between 5’6 and 5;10, weighing 180 to 220 pounds, and having ruddy brown hair. 

Anyone with information is asked to call 844-459-5786. Callers may remain anonymous.

A reward of $230,000 is offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible, police said.
