The Goodhue County sheriff's office released composite sketches Friday of three babies found dead in Mississippi River waters near Red Wing the past eight years.

Sheriff Dean Albers released the images hoping someone would come forward with information.

"The idea is to put a face on these babies, to let people know that they were real people," he said.

The first baby - a newborn girl - turned up in a Red Wing marina in 1999, followed by a newborn boy in Lake Pepin in 2003 and another newborn girl in the Treasure Island Resort & Casino marina in 2007. The sheriff's office has made several appeals for information and has received about 100 leads. None has panned out.

The first two infants had the same mother and were almost certainly white, authorities concluded based on DNA tests. The third infant was not related to the first two and was most likely of American Indian descent.

Albers said his office recently has taken DNA samples from several people, including one woman.

The images were created by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children based on photos of the dead children.

Anyone with information may contact the sheriff's office at 651-385-3155.
