FBI scours nation for alleged child predator


The FBI is searching for John Doe 28, suspected of sexual exploitation of a child.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is searching nationwide for a man suspected of sexually exploiting a child, and the agency’s Atlanta office needs your help.

The man is known only as “John Doe 28,” Stephen Emmett, spokesman for the FBI Atlanta office, said Wednesday in a press release. The FBI is sharing photos and informational posters of the subject, which can be found online, with the public.

In November 2012, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children first learned of video footage of John Doe 28 engaging in “sexually explicit activities with a child,” Emmett said.

The video, he said, showed John Doe 28 and victim in “a residence with what appears to be a blue sofa chair and a picture hanging on the wall.” In the footage, John Doe 28 wore wire-framed glasses and a burgundy T-shirt with a shark logo on the left side. He appeared to be a Caucasian male, possibly in his 30s or 40s, with a receding hairline.

His whereabouts – or any possible connections to specific regions or states in the U.S. – remain unknown.

Anyone with information is encouraged to submit a tip online or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-225-5324.
