FBI: Tips Needed To Identify Child In Sex Case

Posted: Updated:

The FBI is asking the public to help identify two men who may have information about a sexual exploitation investigation.

The FBI announced Tuesday that the agency is asking the public to help identify two unknown men who may be able to provide key information in identifying a child victim in a sexual exploitation investigation.

The unidentified child was initially recorded by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in February of 2003, in photographs portraying the child in sexually explicit positions.  The images are still being circulated on the Internet, across numerous child pornography forums.

The FBI said that they have gathered clues from the images that are relevant to the case, including a yellow T-shirt that says "New Market Basketball" and features an outline of a basketball.  The T-shirt led the FBI to believe the individuals in question may be connected to one of the following facilities:

  • New Market Township, Ohio (Highland County)
  • New Market Elementary School, Indiana
  • New Market, Iowa
  • New Market Elementary School, Maryland
  • East New Market, Maryland
  • New Market, Virginia
  • New Market Sports Camp, Virginia
  • New Market Elementary School, Alabama
  • New Market Elementary School, Tennessee
  • New Market Township, Minnesota
  • New Market, North Carolina

The FBI also released images of a house with a yellow siding and an above-ground swimming pool that may also help provide information about the geographic location of the abused child.

The first unidentified individual is described as a white male between the ages of 25 and 35, with dark hair and wearing glasses.  The second unidentified person is a white male, between the ages of 35 and 45 with dark hair.

The FBI believes the men may have been in contact with the victim, and are requesting that anyone with information call the FBI Cincinnati bureau at 513-421-4310, submit a tip online at https://tips.fbi.gov/, or call the FBI's toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI.

These two men have not been charged with any crimes at this time.
