    GRAND RAPIDS -- Police are hoping a clay model of a woman's face, who is believed to have been murdered and left in Ada Township Park, will help them solve a 12-year-old cold case.
    Officials with the Kent Metro Cold Case Team today revealed the model in an afternoon press conference.
    No one has been reported missing matching the black female's description, and police say a national database of dental records offered no leads.
    Rex Larsen | The Grand Rapids PressA Kent County Cold Case team releases information about a 1997 investigation of a woman found dead in Ada Township.State police say the model, based on the woman's skull, is a "last-ditch" effort to identify her and bring her family closure.
    A township maintenance worker found the woman's skeletal remains on July 31, 1997, in a heavily wooded area of the park, 9232 E. Fulton St.
    Police think the remains were there for a year or longer.
    "Why not use the latest technology we have?" said State Police Detective Sally Wolter. "This might do the trick."
    Previous police sketches of what detectives believed the woman looked like, as well as computer-generated photos produced 11 years ago, brought no leads in the case.
    Wolter said detectives have not ruled out the possibility the woman may have been one of several prostitutes murdered in the 1990s. She said it is not necessarily unusual for someone's family, particularly from an urban setting, not to report someone missing.
