The FBI says it has located a man suspected of sexually exploiting a child.

The FBI says the man, known to the public as John Doe 27, has been identified and located in the Midwest. His name has not been released.

Authorities say the man, seen in the photos here on our page, is accused of taking photos of himself engaging in sexual activity with a child and then posting those photos on the Internet. The FBI says those photos are still being passed around child pornography forums.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children obtained the photos in April of this year, and have been looking for clues to the man's identity within the photos ever since.

The FBI says no arrest warrants have been issued or served at this time.
