DEER ISLAND, MA (CNN) – Massachusetts authorities are seeking help in identifying a little girl whose body was found on Deer Island in Boston Harbor last week.

The child was found in a garbage bag on the western shore of the 185-acre peninsula on June 25. Her body showed no obvious signs of trauma, and investigators said her body had only been there for a short time.

Authorities released a computer-generated image of the girl, who was about 3½ feet tall and just over 30 pounds. Authorities say she was about 4 years old. She was wrapped in a black-and-white zebra blanket and wearing polka-dot leggings at the time of her death.

“I think we all know she’s a beautiful child, and she deserves dignity,” Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said.

A Massachusetts State Police Facebook post urged the public to “be alert for any children who seem to have gone missing from their communities” over the holiday weekend.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to call the Massachusetts State Police at 508-820-2121, the Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit at 617-727-8817 or Winthrop Police at 617-539-5806.
