PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputies are trying to find a man who raped a 12-year-old girl at John Prince Park.

Barbera said the man drove her to John Prince Park, where he raped her.

Deputies released a sketch of the man, who was described as being 60 to 80 with brown eyes, balding white hair and having a mole or birthmark on his lower jaw.
