TAMPA – The Federal Bureau of Investigation is seeking the public’s help in identifying a person of interest in sexual exploitation probe.

Investigators believe ‘John Doe 34,’ may possess critical information pertaining to the identity of a young sexual assault victim.

According to a report issued by the FBI ‘Doe 34,’ may reside in the southern portion of the United States. In July, authorities obtained video from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children showing a white male between 18 and 25 years of age.

The video shows a child being abused around the Thanksgiving holiday. In an effort to prevent further abuse during the upcoming holiday, the FBI is attempting to identify ‘John Doe 34.’

This individual is being sought as part of the agency’s Operation Rescue Me and Endangered Child Alert Program initiatives.

If you recognize the unidentified man in the pictures or the other items please contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-225-5324.
