PENTICTON - Penticton RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance as they review past cold cases in the region in the hopes of discovering new information that could help investigators.

This week police are reviewing a file from 1982, in which a person walking their dog on Feb.14 came across a body of an unidentified female infant on Skaha Beach near the channel.

RCMP say in a media release there were no signs of physical trauma, and it is believed the infant had been in the water for several days and was washed ashore.

Investigators at the time didn't turn up any leads when looking into births at Penticton Regional Hospital.

In the intervening 36 years since the discovery of the remains, police investigation remains active. There has been no contact with family members, and police continue seeking assistance from the community to help find out what happened to baby Jane Doe.

This week’s cold case is the second of six past cases the Penticton detachment will be reviewing over the next few weeks.

Last week's cold case involved human remains found by a hunter near Chute Lake Road in November, 1991.

Any information related to this or any other cold case investigation is asked to contact Cpl. Jill Wrigglesworth at 250-770-4714, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
