Law enforcement officials need your help identifying a woman in a sexual exploitation investigation.

The FBI believes the unknown woman may have critical information pertaining to the identity of a child victim in a sexual exploitation investigation. The woman, only known as Jane Doe, 39, can be seen in a video with a child who is being sexually exploited.

Further investigation revealed the images surfaced online. Special Agent Susan Romash, who investigates child exploitation cases as part of the FBI’s Violent Crimes Against Children program says they know the video has been traded on the Internet and a child is a victim who needs their help.

In the video, an adult woman is heard speaking Vietnamese, and at one point her face is shown. The FBI said the video was first noted by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in April 2016. The woman is described as an Asian female, likely between the ages of 25 and 35, with long black hair. She is wearing a white, yellow, blue, and red floral dress. 

“Our hope,” Romash said, “is that someone will recognize this individual’s face—or her voice—and come forward with information.”

Anyone with information can submit a tip online or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).
