FBI hunts John Doe sex attack suspect through endangered child mission

The FBI says it is hunting a man who allegedly sexually assaulted a child in the back of a van.

The person of interest, known as John Doe 48, was captured on video abusing the child, whom the FBI said it is also trying to identify and locate. 

The FBI issued the appeal on Wednesday via its Endangered Child Alert Program (ECAP), a national and international media request for information on unknown adults, referred to as John/Jane Does, whose faces and/or other distinguishing characteristics are visible in association with child pornography images.

John Doe 48 is described as a white man, aged between 45 and 65 years old, with dark hair and a gray beard. He has a tattoo on each of his forearms.

He is seen in the video in the back of a 2018-2019 Nissan NV cargo van wearing a blue T-shirt and a dark-colored hat. He is heard speaking English in the video, the FBI said.

The FBI uncovered the video in December 2023 during three other investigations by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The data embedded within the video file indicated that it was produced in October 2023.
