SFPD Release Updated Sketch of Toddler Arianna Fitts After Going Missing 5 Years Ago

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/BCN) -- Police continue to look for Arianna Fitts, the 2-year-old daughter of Nicole Fitts, the 32-year-old mother whose remains were discovered in San Francisco's McLaren Park five years ago.

On Thursday, police released a rendering by a forensic sketch artist showing what Arianna may look like now at 7 years old.

Nicole Fitts was found at the park by Recreation and Park Department workers on April 8, 2016 buried in a small, shallow grave, curled in the fetal position, and covered with plywood.

Nicole Fitts, a Best Buy employee and single mother of two daughters, was reported missing on April 5. She was last seen on April 1, when she was "summoned to meet a person known to her," police said at the time without elaborating.

No suspects or persons of interest have ever been named in the case.
