Police released a new sketch Monday amid the months-long investigation into the deaths of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams.

The reward for information leading the suspect's arrest is now more than $230,000. Sgt. Kim Riley tells FOX59 the sketch is the result of information to the tip line and follow-up investigations in the past couple of weeks.

The person in the sketch is a man between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-10, 180 to 220 pounds, white, with reddish brown hair, Indiana State Police said in a statement.

Liberty German, 14, vanished with 13-year-old Abigail Williams on February 13 while hiking a trail near their hometown of Delphi, about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis. Their bodies were found the next day in nearby woods.

The sketch depicts a hat, but police say it might not be accurate.

Investigators are asking the public to study the man's facial features and contact them with any information on him. They also released audio in which a male voice can be heard saying "down the hill".

German and Williams were dropped off near the Monon High Bridge Trail near Delphi, but when a family member came to pick them up they weren't there. Riley said investigators believe the man captured in the photos killed both girls.
