Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is asking for helping finding a man suspected of sexually exploiting a child.

The bureau is distributing photographs and posters with an unknown man, dubbed John Doe 27.

According to the FBI, John Doe 27 was photographed while engaging in sexually explicit activities with a child. The images were first recorded by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in April of 2013. 

They are still being circulated in numerous child pornography forums across the Internet.

Investigators for the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children enhanced a number of photos depicting John Doe 27 and believe there are several clues which may lead to his identification.

Images that were released show a home with a distinct plaid chair, male pattern baldness on the back of the man's head, and a ring on the man's right ring finger. 

Based on audio from the video that is being circulated, investigators believe the man may have referred to himself as "Jimmy."

There are no specific details linking the suspect to a particular state or region of the United States, and both his identity and whereabouts are currently unknown.

The man appears to be a Caucasian male, possibly in his 40s or 50s, with dark hair and dark eyes.

Anyone with information to provide should submit a tip online at https://tips.fbi.gov/ , or call the FBI's toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI. The public is reminded no charges have been filed in this case and the pictured individual is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
