Prosecutors in Cumberland County have released a sketch of a man they want to question in relation to the disappearance of missing 5-year-old Dulce Maria Alavez in Bridgeton.
Alavez went missing from the Bridgeton City Park Recreational Area back on Sept. 16 just before 5 p.m.
Prosecutors say the individual has been reported to have been seen in the park around the time Alavez went missing. 
The individual has been reported to have been with one or two children under the age of 5 years old.
The person was reported to have been wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a white baseball-style hat. 
Authorities say that he is a Hispanic male, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall with a slender build, and between the ages of 30-35 years old. The sketch was developed after a witness who recently came forward was able to provide a description. 
Prosecutors are asking the person, or anyone who may recognize him, to come forward as investigators wish to speak with him as it is believed he may have information that is helpful in determining the circumstances that led to Alavez's disappearance.
Prosecutors are not calling the person a suspect or a person of interest.  He is simply a possible witness they want to speak with at this time.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Bridgeton Police Department at 856-451-0033.
