FBI Looking for Men Connected to Exploitation Case
NEW MARKET, Iowa - The Federal Bureau of Information believes an Iowa town could be linked to sexual exploitation case. One of the towns involved in the investigation is New Market, but authorities aren't sure if that is New Market, Iowa or another New Market.
They said the child at the center of the case was seen wearing a yellow shirt that said "New Market Basketball" with the outline of a basketball on the front.
The FBI is looking for two men, whose names are unknown, that could have information surrounding the identity of the child. One of the men is described as white, between 25 and 35, with dark hair and glasses. The other is said to be a white, between 35 and 45, with dark hair.
Authorities said one, or both of them, could be taking photos of the the child in sexually explicit positions. Those pictures were first recorded to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in February of 2003. Authorities say they are still being circulated around child pornography sites.
Authorities have begun hanging posters with the men's pictures in several cities that they think are key to the investigation.
They are also looking for what appears to be a house with yellow siding and an above ground pool.
