FBI Needs Help Identifying Suspect

Posted: Updated:

On November 12th, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has potentially identified and located the unknown male suspected of sexually exploiting a child. As of this moment, no arrest warrants have been issued.

According to the FBI, Initial images and videos of the unidentified adult male, called John Doe 27, engaging in sexually explicit activities with a child were first recorded by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in April of 2013. They are still being circulated in numerous child pornography forums across the Internet.

There are no specific details linking the suspect to a particular state or region of the United States, and both his identity and whereabouts are currently unknown, says investigators.

The suspect appears to be a Caucasian male, possibly in his 40s or 50s, with dark hair and dark eyes.

Anyone with information to provide should submit a tip online, or call the FBI's toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI.

Photographs and informational posters depicting the unknown individual, known only as John Doe 27, are attached.
