John Doe 44 (FBI)

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The FBI is working to identify a man in connection to a child sexual exploitation case.

Officials believe the man, known only as John Doe 44, may have information critical to the identity of the victim.

The FBI is releasing still images of the man nationwide in an effort to gain information in the case. There are no specific leads linking the individual to the local area.

Authorities do know that video of the man and child were first recorded by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in February of 2021, but data indicates the files were produced before November 2018.
