The hunt is on for a woman accused of producing child pornography. Federal investigators across the nation are hoping somebody can identify the wanted woman to help them rescue two young girls between the ages of three and seven.
The woman at the center of this nationwide alert may be in the Washington area or someplace far away. Federal investigators just don't know.
They are calling her Jane Doe and releasing images from two pornographic videos found on a computer seized during a raid on a home in Colorado in June.
"She's a white female," says ICE agent Brian Korzak. "We believe her to be between 25 and 35 years old. There's a distinctive mole on the back of her left thigh that is also included in the images we're distributing so hopefully maybe someone will recognize that mole and say, 'Hey, I can identify her based on that."'
On the video with Jane Doe are a man whose face could not be seen and the two little girls. Agent Korzak says in the videos, the girls are being sexually abused.
"The kids are definitely in danger and we believe them to still be in danger and we want to do everything we can to try and find them," says Korzak.
Investigators say the same two girls were also seen in pornographic photographs found on a computer seized in Los Angeles more than a year ago.
Investigators are not sure where the video was shot, the photographs taken or where those children are right now.
"We have no indication this abuse has stopped," agent Korzak tells us. "And we're hoping that if we can identify and arrest this suspect, we'll be able to put an end to the abuse of these two children."
Based on an analysis of the images, federal investigators believe there is some sort of caregiver or custodial relationship between the children and the woman.
