Called “John Doe 40,” the unidentified man was with the child in a video that caught the notice of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in October, according to an FBI press release issued Wednesday.

The man is described as a white, heavyset male with dark-colored hair between the ages of 30 and 40. He is heard speaking English in the video, according to the FBI.

The man is being sought as part of the FBI’s Operation Rescue Me and Endangered Child Alert Program initiatives, both of which represent strategic partnerships between the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Anyone with information concerning the man can submit a tip on the FBI website or call the tip line at 1-800-225-5324.
