MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – A child predator remains on the run, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation may be closer to finding him.

The FBI now believes it has identified and located the man referred to as John Doe 27.

On Wednesday, the FBI put out a nationwide bulletin asking for the public's help identifying the man from enhanced photos pulled from a video circulating the Internet. The video shows the man sexually abusing a little girl.

Through tips generated from releasing the photos, investigators believe they know his identity and his location. All that has been released to the media is that they think he is from the Midwest.

Agents say he sexually exploited a young girl in the video discovered in April 2013, and that the images are still circulating on child pornography forums.
