The FBI is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who is thought to have information about a child sexual exploitation case.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children got the video of the man, known as John Doe 34, and a child in July, but investigators think the child abuse might have happened around Thanksgiving, according to a news release.

The FBI is releasing images of the man, audio clips of his voice and images of a doll and an armoire shown in the background of the video in hopes of identifying the man and preventing possible abuse this Thanksgiving.

Because of the man’s accent, investigators think he may be from the South. He is white, probably between 18 and 25 years old, with short brown hair and prominent brown eyebrows.

To hear an audio clip of the man’s voice and see more images, visit fbi.gov/wanted/ecap/unknown-individual-6/view.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 1-800-225-5324 or leave a tip at Tips.fbi.gov.

The FBI and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children work together through the Endangered Child Alert Program and Operation Rescue Me initiatives to find and publicize clues found in child pornography to identify victims and perpetrators of the crimes.
