A “silent walk” will be held Thursday in Bridgeton to mark two years since the disappearance of Dulce Alavez.
The event will take place at the park where the then-5-year-old was last seen.
On Wednesday, police released new photos showing what Dulce may now look like at age 7.
Artists with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children created the age-progressed photos.
Police hope the photos will offer new leads in the case.
Dulce has been missing since she disappeared from a Bridgeton park in Sept. 2019. She is a Hispanic girl who is about 3 feet tall, weighing 60-70 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. She was last seen wearing a yellow shirt with an elephant on it, as well as black-and-white pants and white shoes, police say.
Detectives said they believe Dulce was taken by a light-skinned Hispanic male, standing 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 inches tall with a thin build, facial acne, no facial hair and wearing orange sneakers, red pants and a black shirt. He allegedly led Dulce from the park to a red van with a sliding side door.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit at 609-882-2000, ext. 2857; the Bridgeton Police Department at 856-451-0033; or by calling 911 immediately.
To this day, police have not identified any suspects in the case.
A reward of $75,000 is being offered for any information that leads to finding out where Dulce may be.
