A $750 reward is being offered for information to help identify a body found near Hoover Dam.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said the teenage girl was found on north Highway 93 between Kingman and Hoover Dam on Sept. 28 by a couple hiking in the area.

The girl was described as an African American or bi-racial female between the ages of 13 to 17, approximately 5’7” tall, between 105 and 130 pounds with pierced ears. No scars or tattoos were noted by authorities.
