GARY — The Lake County coroner's office is still seeking help in finding the family of a deceased young teen found Monday in an alley. 

The teen, who is listed as a "Jane Doe," was discovered about 8:20 a.m. by NIPSCO employees just west of Pennsylvania Street near 20th Place in Gary, according to the Lake County Sheriff's Department.

Two facial sketches of the woman were released and posted on a Lake County coroner's personal Facebook page early Saturday. 

According to the coroner, the teen is African-American, 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 117 pounds, with short black hair and pierced ears.

At the time of her death, the victim had been wearing a size 32B bra, a blue and white Nike windbreaker, striped Champion pants, and a pink T-shirt with a Superman emblem and the words "Supergirl Power" on the front. She also wore blue and black Nike Air Max Plus tennis shoes.
