FBI searches DFW for man in connection with child sexual predator
Authorities believe a man who can provide valuable information regarding the location of a missing and sexually exploited child may be in DFW.
The FBI is seeking the public’s assistance with identifying an unknown individual who may be able to provide valuable information regarding the sexual exploitation of a child.
The individual of interest first came to the FBI’s attention in November 2005 after a series of photographs surfaced on the Internet depicting a prepubescent female, about 10 years old, posing naked in sexually explicit positions. Also visible in the photographs is an unknown male who can be seen witnessing the child’s behavior from a bed nearby. These photographs have been circulated/traded on various illegal child pornography Internet forums.
Enhancement of the background of one of the photographs identified what appears to be a child’s drinking cup from the QuikTrip chain of gas stations. This image led investigators to believe that the photographs were likely taken prior to November 2005 in one of the areas where QuikTrip stores are located. This has led investigators to believe the man may be in North Texas.
A baseball cap displaying what could be the logo of a local sports team, as well as a partial image of what appears to be a telephone book, are also clues which may provide valuable information regarding the location of this endangered child.
This individual’s identity and current whereabouts are unknown. He appears to be a white male between the ages of 55 and 65 with brown eyes, gray hair, and a full beard and mustache.
A photograph and informational poster depicting the unknown man are being disseminated to the public and can be found online at the FBI website at here.
Anyone with information to provide should contact their local FBI office, submit a tip online at https://tips.fbi.gov/, or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
