COLUMBIA, SC (WYFF) - The FBI has released still images and sound from video recordings they say were made by a man who sexually abused a young boy.

Investigators believe the sexual abuse of the child happened around the Thanksgiving holiday last year, and they hope to intervene before there is any further abuse.

The videos of the man investigators call John Doe 34 were first recorded by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in July of 2015. 

Investigators for the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children enhanced still images showing John Doe 34 and several clues that may help identify him, including a wooden armoire and a doll which were visible in the background of the videos.   

Investigators believe John Doe 34 lives in the southern part of the U.S., based on his accent that can be heard in the recording. He is heard saying: “Bubba’s going to get to play here in a minute. In a minute. Watchin’ videos.”

John Doe 34 is described as a white male, likely between the ages of 18 and 25, with short brown hair and prominent brown eyebrows.
