The Knox County Sheriff's Department has established an updated facial approximation for "Jane Doe" -- an unidentified woman whose body was found in the East Galesburg brickyard back in 1996.

The department is also asking for help from the public in locating a woman who went missing around the time Jane Doe's body was found.

Helen "Ruth" Alps went missing from Knox County in the late 1980s or 1990. Alp's family members are telling police that Alps may be the "Jane Doe" they've been looking for.

"We're in the process of getting a DNA standard from a daughter to have it compared to the remains," said Sgt. Jason Landers, Knox County.

"Alps is the only outstanding missing person that we have."

Police are also looking into the possibility that "Jane Doe" could be a resident from the Galesburg State Research Hospital -- a mental health facility that closed down in the eighties.
