Michigan police have released an artist's sketch of a man wanted for sexually assaulting rower Jenn Gibbons after she set off on a 1,500-mile solo rowing journey around Lake Michigan to raise money for breast cancer survivors.

Police say someone must have followed Gibbons as she blogged about her journey and broke into the vessel's cabin early Sunday.

Gibbons says she has gone public about the assault because she wants the guy caught and wants to send a message of strength to others who've been assaulted. And she's continuing her journey by bike and boat, but no longer alone.
