Police Report in Missing Conn. Girl

BOSTON (AP) -- Massachusetts authorities say hundreds of tips have poured in from across the country after they released a computer-generated image of a young girl found dead in a plastic bag in Boston Harbor.

State police spokesman David Procopio tells The Boston Globe ( http://bit.ly/1GVw7CX ) that people have provided information on other missing children, too.

Officials released the image Thursday in an attempt to generate clues about the girl's identity, which remains unknown.

Officials believe the brown-haired, brown-eyed girl was about 4 years old. Her body was found June 25 on Deer Island inside a plastic bag that also contained a black and white zebra-print blanket.

A spokesman for Suffolk County District Attorney says some people have offered to pay for the girl's burial or funeral costs.
