Police are investigating a strange case in a California community, where porcelain dolls are being left on the doorsteps of girls they hold an eerie resemblance to.

At least eight families have received the dolls in the Talega community of San Clemente, with all of the girls targeted around 10 years old.

Families began filing police reports about the dolls as early as June 16, but the mystery of their origin continues.

“It caught me by surprise,” Lt. Jeff Hallock from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department told ABC News. “It spun of control.”

“We’re trying to connect the families and the girls,” he added. “We’re trying to figure out if there is a correlation.”

Though some of the girls do attend the same school, some families don’t know each other, making it difficult for investigators to uncover who is leaving the dolls.

“The dolls were being left at these homes, but everybody thought they were the only one,” said Hallock. “When the families started communicating and put it together, they became concerned.”

Police are trying to figure out if the dolls were homemade or bought at a local retailer.

Though the situation may seem eerie, the police see no foul play.

“At this point we don’t have a specific crime,” Hallock said. “It’s very suspicious activity and we’re following up on it. We’re trying to find answers as we speak.”

Late Thursday, authorities issued a press release saying they solved the mystery.
