The FBI is turning to the public in hopes of identifying a possible child sexual predator.
In a press release issued Wednesday, the agency states that the unknown male, referred to as John Doe 28, was first seen “engaging in sexually explicit activities with a child” in images and video that were first discovered by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in November 2012.
These images have been enhanced to provide several clues the FBI hopes will help in identifying the man. These photographs and other information pertaining to the subject are posted online at the FBI’s website: www.fbi.gov/wanted/ecap.
According to the FBI, the video shows the suspect and child inside a residence with what appears to be a blue sofa chair and a picture on the wall in the background. The suspect is wearing wire-framed glasses and a burgundy t-shirt that appears to have a shark logo on his left side.
The suspect appears to be Caucasian, in his 30s to 40s, and has a receding hairline.
Authorities have been unable to link the man with any particular state or region of the United States. Anyone with information on the case or suspect’s identity can provide tips online at https://tips.fbi.gov/ or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).
No charges have been filed in this case and the man whose identity is being sought is presumed innocent unless he is proven guilty in a court of law.
