The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) needs the public's help identifying a man who it says is connected to a child sex crime case.

The individual, known only as John Doe 41, is believed to have critical information pertaining to the identity of a male child victim in a sexual exploitation video.

Photographs and an informational poster depicting the unknown individual, known only as John Doe 41, are being disseminated to the public and can be found online at the FBI website.

The video depicting the unidentified male, John Doe 41, shown with a child, was first noted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in March of 2018; therefore, the video is believed to have been produced around 2016 to 2018.

John Doe 41 is described as a black man, likely between the ages of 18 and 20 years old. He appears to be a thin-framed individual with black hair.

Anyone with information to provide should submit a tip online, or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).

The FBI says no charges have been filed in the case.
