Libby, 14, and Abby, 13, were found slain near a hiking trail on February 14. A man's voice can be heard saying "down the hill" on the recording, which was played several times during a press conference in February. Hundreds of people, including police, firefighters, family, friends and residents of the surrounding community, searched for the girls into the night Monday and again Tuesday morning.

The sketch "will give people a clearer image of who we are looking for", Riley said. Photo and sketch courtesy Indiana State Police.

Kim Riley confirmed to NBC affiliate WTHR that new evidence would be released in the deaths of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams.

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. "This person is our suspect".
