WASHINGTON (FOX 13) - -

The FBI is hoping you can identify a man they say is a child predator.

Right now, the man is known to agents only as "John Doe 27." Video of him engaging in sexually explicit activities with a child were discovered online in April by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, and those images are still circulating in child pornography forums across the Internet.

The video shows a glimpse of John Doe 27, which investigators hope will lead to his identification -- and the recovery of the exploited child.

"These types of individuals typically don't stop with one victim," said Special Agent Shanna Daniels, who is investigating the case. "That's why we need to catch him before other children are victimized."

John Doe 27 appears to be a white male, possibly in his 40s or 50s, with dark hair and dark eyes. Working with NCMEC, FBI investigators enhanced images from the video showing the man's face and other details. For example, the subject and the victim appear to be inside a residence with a distinct plaid chair in a corner—a chair that someone familiar with the house might easily recognize.

Based on audio recovered from the video, it is believed that the subject may have referred to himself as "Jimmy" and may have been speaking with a Southern accent.

Anyone with information about this individual should submit a tip on the FBI's website or call the FBI's toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
