Cook County authorities are releasing a sketch made using new 3-D scan technology on a human skull found in woods near Chicago, hoping that someone will recognize the man.

The sketch was completed at the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification and released Friday by the Cook County Sheriff's Office.

Law enforcement officials say the man's skeletal remains were discovered near Cicero in July 2008 and had been there for three to eight months.

The man was white, between 55 and 75 years old and between 5-foot-1 inches and 5-foot-6 inches tall. His most prominent features include an obviously crooked nose and a gap between his two top front teeth.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's department at (708) 865-6244.
