DALLAS, TX (KLTV) -

Authorities in north Texas are asking the public's help to identify a suspect involved in a child pornography ring that may be with one of his victims.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents investigating this case believe "John Doe", a young adult male between 18 and 20 years old, produced child pornography in which he photographed himself engaging in sexual contact with a black baby girl who is 12 to 18 months old. Today, the toddler may be between two and two and a half years old.

Based on clues seen in the photos, investigators believe this person may now live in, or had visited, north Texas at the time these photos were taken in April 2013. The ball cap's logo, "Shut Up N Play", was new at the time. The ball caps had not yet been released for sale. However, there had been very limited distribution within north Texas.

Investigators were unable to identify the suspect using traditional means and are now turning to the public for help.

Anyone who thinks they may recognize this person is asked to contact Homeland Security Investigations at 1-866-347-2423. Tips can also be emailed by completing HSI's online tip form

In addition to public appeals, HSI has distributed "John Doe's" information and photos to law enforcement agencies and to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, in a unified effort to find this predator and rescue the child.
