FBI asking for help in locating man seen in explicit photos

OKLAHOMA CITY_The FBI is asking for the public's help in tracking down a man they believe could have information regarding the sexual exploitation of a child.

In a press release, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Oklahoma City Field Office James E. Finch said the individual of interest first came to the FBI's attention in November of 2005, after a series of photographs surfaced on the Internet depicting a female, approximately 10 years old, posing naked in sexually explicit positions.

Finch said the photographs have been circulated/traded as child pornography among various illegal Internet forums.

The man the FBI is looking for was witnessing the child's behavior from a nearby bed. The man's identity and current whereabouts are unknown.

He appears to be an older, White male between the ages of 55 and 65 with brown eyes, gray hair, and a full beard and mustache. 

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 of 2005, in one of the following 13 U.S. cities where QuikTrip stores are located: 

-Atlanta, Georgia

-Charlotte, North Carolina

-Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas

-Des Moines, Iowa

-Omaha, Nebraska

-Greenville/Spartanburg, South Carolina

-Kansas City, Missouri

-Springfield, Missouri

-Wichita, Kansas

-Phoenix, Arizona

-Tucson, Arizona

-St. Louis, Missouri

-Tulsa, Oklahoma

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.

The FBI also said the pictures are not proof of guilt and the man is considered innocent until charges are filed and he is found guilty in a court of law.

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.
