FBI Seeking Individual Who May Have Information Regarding the Identity of a Child Sexual Assault Victim

1/28/21 Update: The FBI has identified and located Jane Doe 43. We appreciate the assistance from both the media and the public. No further publicity is needed at this time.

The FBI is seeking the public’s assistance with obtaining identifying information regarding an unknown female who may have critical information pertaining to the identity of a child victim in an ongoing sexual exploitation investigation. Photographs and an informational poster depicting the unknown individual, known only as Jane Doe 43, are being disseminated to the public and can be found online.

Initial video of the unidentified female, Jane Doe 43, shown with a child, was first seen and likely created in October 2019.

Jane Doe 43 is described as a White female with dark hair, between 20 and 30 years of age. She is heard speaking English in the video.

Anyone with information to provide should submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324). The public is reminded no charges have been filed in this case, and the pictured individual is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

This individual is being sought as part of the FBI’s Operation Rescue Me and Endangered Child Alert Program (ECAP) initiatives, both of which represent strategic partnerships between the FBI and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. Operation Rescue Me focuses on using clues obtained through in-depth image analysis to identify the child victims depicted in child exploitation material, while ECAP seeks national and international media exposure of unknown adults (referred to as John/Jane Does) who visibly display their faces and/or other distinguishing characteristics in association with child pornography images.
