Police in Maryland have released a sketch of the suspect who they believe killed Rachel Morin — a mother of five who was found dead after she went missing in August — according to authorities.

The Harford County Sheriff's Office in Bel Air, Md., shared two photos of the sketch on Monday morning.

Morin, 37, was reported missing on Aug. 5 by her boyfriend who said she went out for a run on the Ma & Pa Trail in Bel Air, Md., but never returned, PEOPLE reported at the time. Morin was found dead the next day when a volunteer who joined a search party discovered her along the trail.

Harford County Sheriff Jeffery Gahler said at a news conference at the time that there were plenty of “indicators” that left “no doubt” Morin was murdered, PEOPLE previously reported. “Sadly, it’s a homicide case,” the sheriff said.

Shortly afterwards, the Harford County Sheriff’s Office released a surveillance video on social media of the suspect, who is seen leaving a home following a home invasion in Los Angeles, Calif.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed later that month that “DNA obtained in the Rachel Morin murder matches that of a suspect identified in a residential burglary and assault on March 26, 2023.”

In Monday’s statement, Harford police said authorities believe the suspect may have been in the area for a few days before the Morin's murder.

“While he was here, where did he stay?  Who did he speak to?  Where did he work?” the statement reads, urging anyone with information to come forward.

Anyone with information leading to an arrest and conviction is subject to a $35,000 reward, the statement said.
