Indiana authorities say they received around 1,000 fresh tips in just 24 hours after they released a new sketch and footage of the man they say murdered two teenage girls on a hiking trail two years ago.

Liberty German, 14, and Abigail William, 13, vanished on February 13, 2017 after a relative dropped them off for a hike near the Monon High Bridge - an abandoned railroad bridge near their hometown of Delphi.

Pickup - Location - Bodies - Day - Search

They failed to show up at a pre-arranged pickup location. Their bodies were found the next day following a search in a rugged, wooded area at the back of a property about half-a-mile away.

New information was released on Monday in the two-year-old investigation as an emotional Indiana State Police Superintendent appealed to the 'little bit of a conscience' that the killer had left and warned he is likely 'hiding in plain sight'.

Authorities - Sketch - Footage - Killer - Monon

Authorities released the sketch and footage of the killer on the Monon High Bridge where the girls had been. They also released updated audio of the killer speaking. The footage and audio was retrieved from Liberty's cellphone.

Until Monday, Riley said authorities had received about 35,000 tips since the slayings.

Indiana - State - Police - Tuesday - Tips

Indiana State Police said Tuesday the tips came to a task force via email, tip line and directly to participating law enforcement agencies.

Police said they believe the man is between the ages of 18 and 40 and either lives or lived in Delphi or works in the area.

Spt - Doug - Carter - Killer - Press

Spt. Doug Carter addressed the killer directly during the emotional press conference and acknowledged he could even be in the room.

'We have a witness. You made mistakes. We are coming for you and there's no place for a heartless coward like you to hide that gets his thrill from killing little girls,' he said.
