[EN VIDÉO] He takes a 3D portrait at Comic-Con to solve a San Diego disappearance case.

A medical examiner is using a 3D printed skull to mold a likeness of a missing person out of clay, hoping to solve the case in the process, CBS reports.

During shaping, every muscle and strand of hair is taken into account.

“Everything that the person looked like before the disappearance is etched into the clay skull,” explained Joe Mullens, an artist who specializes in forensics.

An artist tries to recreate the face of a young man whose remains were found in the Tijuana River in March 1995 and whose murder was never solved.

“We don’t know what happened to this child in 1995, but we need answers,” said Callahan Walsh, a spokesman for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, who took over the investigation.

Even as technology answers more and more questions, massive information sharing is necessary to resolve investigations.

“Someone at Comic-Con might know something,” Mr. Walsh said.

Breeding should be completed on Saturday afternoon.
