FBI needs help identifying "John Doe 45"

The FBI is asking for the public's help in identifying a person who may know the identity of a child sex abuse victim.

Investigators are calling the man "John Doe 45," and they say he first appeared in a video with the child back in 2020 - according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Embedded data in the video indicates it was made sometime in 2019.

John Doe 45 is a white man with brown hair, a mustache and a brown beard. He's heard speaking English on the video - but investigators admit his appearance could have changed since the video was made.
