The FBI is asking for the public's help in identifying a man, possibly from Iowa, who may have information regarding the sexual exploitation of a child.

The man in question came to the FBI's attention in November of 2005 when a series of child porn photos surfaced on the internet where a man is seen on a nearby bed.

Through photo enhancement, the FBI was able to see what appears to be a child's drinking cup from the QuikTrip chain of gas stations.

Based on this information, the FBI believes the photos were taken before November 2005 in one of 13 cities where QuikTrip stores are located.  On of those cities is Des Moines.

Another photo enhancement shows a baseball hat with what could be the logo of a local sports team and a partial image of a phone book.

The FBI says that while the man's identity and current whereabouts are unknown, he appears to be an older, white male, between the ages of 55 and 65, with brown eyes, gray hair, and a full beard and mustache.

No charges have been filed in this case, the FBI would like to interview the man in the photos. 

If you have information, contact your local FBI office or call the FBI's toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
