Norfolk, Va. – The Federal Bureau of Investigation is asking for the public’s help with obtaining information that would identify a man who may have information on the identity of the child victim in an ongoing sexual exploitation investigation.

The man, known only as John Doe 29, is shown in images that were recorded by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in January of 2008.

Investigators for the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children have successfully enhanced images depicting John Doe 29 and believe they contain several clues, which may assist with the identification of the subject.

For example, additional images relevant to the investigation include those depicting the individual wearing a silver ring on his left ring finger, the victim wearing blue and white Velcro Nike brand tennis shoes, and the background where the images were taken.  Additionally, the individual is seen wearing a white, black, and red shirt with what appears to be a design and/or writing on the sleeves.

None of the information links the man to a particular state or region of the United States. Both his identity and whereabouts are currently unknown.

John Doe 29 is described as a male with a tan complexion, likely between the ages of 30 and 45, with dark hair.  Anyone with information to provide should submit a tip online at , or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).
